Abstract : This document describes the fourth in a series of application tasks designed to measure performance of a process for the rapid prototyping of embedded digital signal processors. The rapid prototyping process is being developed for the DARPA/Tri-Services rapid prototyping of application specific signal processors (RASSP) program. The benchmark task described here involves virtual and physical prototype development for portions Of a real-time digital signal processing image intelligence (IMINT) system that performs semi-automated IMINT processing (SAIP). The task addresses hardware and software development issues relating to the high-definition imaging (HDI) and minimum mean square error (MSE) target classifier portions of SAIP. Application details and design constraints are provided in this document, as well as a description of product and process metrics collected to derive measures of product and process performance. The application task and associated performance metrics comprise what is termed a benchmark technical description (BTD).
