The combination of General Dynamics Mission Systems’ SignalEye™ software and Curtiss-Wright’s CHAMP-XD1 processor module uses machine learning to detect threats in the radio frequency spectrum.

FAIRFAX, Va. – General Dynamics Mission Systems today announced its collaboration with Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division to deliver open architecture artificial intelligence (AI) based commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions for signal intelligence (SIGINT) and electronic warfare (EW) situational awareness applications.

“The evolving EW and SIGINT threat confronting warfighters today requires an integrated solution,” said Bill Ross, a vice president of General Dynamics Mission Systems. “By combining our SignalEye machine learning software with Curtiss-Wright’s CHAMP-XD1 processor, we can provide warfighters with a greater understanding of the RF threats on the battlefield.”

The combination of General Dynamics Mission Systems’ SignalEye threat detection software and Curtiss-Wright’s Intel® Xeon® D processor-based CHAMP-XD1 module provides system designers with a deployable COTS solution for RF spectrum situational awareness that automatically classifies signals through the use of machine learning.

“We are excited to collaborate with General Dynamics Mission Systems to bring the cutting-edge advantages of machine learning to deployed EW situational awareness applications,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “Our supercomputing class CHAMP-XD1 module is an ideal processor for SignalEye software, easing and accelerating the delivery of RF threat detection to our warfighters.”

About SignalEye software

General Dynamics SignalEye solution provides spectrum situational awareness by automating the classification of signals through the use of machine learning. This electronic warfare software provides tactical warfighters and security personnel with a timely, accurate view of the threat in the RF spectrum. SignalEye is always on - learning and alerting you to the signals that threaten you and your mission. With SignalEye, you will know what is normal and what is a threat at the speed your mission needs.

About the CHAMP-XD1

The 3U OpenVPX™ CHAMP-XD1 is a rugged digital signal processor (DSP) engine module designed for use in very compute-intensive industrial, aerospace and defense applications. It enables developers of High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) systems to take full advantage of the unmatched performance of today’s leading-edge Xeon D processor architecture. This 3U VPX processor card is available in a range of ruggedized configurations to deliver optimal performance in the harshest deployed environments, including air-cooled and conduction cooled variants.
