Abstract : This report summarizes the work done on the Advanced Signal Processing System (ASPS) performance assessment study, performed for Rome Laboratory/IRAE and the Foreign Aerospace Science and Technology Center/DXS of the United States Air Force. The study measured the performance of off-the-shelf technology proposed in the ASPS architecture, including supercomputer based DSP processing linked to a workstation based visual display over a fiber optic (FDDI) network. All processing threads were developed using DSP and visual processing toolkits for flexibility and future expandability. It should be noted that the Foreign Aerospace Science and Technology Center has since been renamed the National Air Intelligence Center (NAIC).
