Reconfigurable Processing Profile
The primary role of the RP node in this application is to process mission-specific sensor data. Additionally, the node can also be designed to interface to a variety other sensor types by incorporating instantiations of the Expansion Profile.
The RP node can also handle sensor data processing tasks such as target tracking and identification, data reduction, compression, etc. Processing could be limited to a single node or distributed across multiple nodes. In the distributed case, gigabit interfaces can be instantiated in order to pipe sensor data to other RP nodes.
