ASHBURN, Va., 2 May 2016. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the rugged CHAMP-GP3 general purpose graphics processor unit (GPGPU) embedded computing module for deployed radar, signals intelligence, and electro-optical signal processing.

The application accelerator 6U OpenVPX module offers the floating point processing power of the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture class GPGPUs. The board features dual 1536-core Tesla M6 MXMs high performance computing devices to provide 5 trillion floating point operations per second (teraFLOPS) of compute performance in one slot.

Designed for compute-intensive applications that require extreme processing, the CHAMP-GP3 provides a size, weight and power (SWaP) optimized solution for system designers who seek the unmatched super computing capability of a Tesla GPGPU to address applications that can't be satisfied by aggregating multiple microprocessors.

The CHAMP-GP3 is designed for use in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and electronic warfare (EW) applications that require teraFLOPS of accelerated processing.

It supports the CUDA and OpenCL programming languages to enable designers using the CHAMP-GP3 to develop applications quickly. The module addresses the massive amounts of data generated by modern radar, signals intelligence and infrared sensors, and provides high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) in cross-cueing applications.
