Abstract : The work presented in this report is the result of collaboration between Rome Laboratory Purdue University and Texas Tech University. This work builds on and extends our previous effort in which the initial version of OMARS (Optimal Mapping Alternate Routing System) was developed. In the current effort, OMARS is extended for use with two parallel architectures: the nCUBE2 and the Intel Paragon. Modifications were made to every major subsystem of OMARS, and these changes are documented in this report. In addition to these functional modifications, the utility of OMARS is also demonstrated using measured execution times of an FFT algorithm, which is commonly found in real-time signal processing applications. Also included is an evaluation of the alternate routing capability of the nCUBE2.
