Project Introduction


Increasing demand for greater environmental protection is promoting the importance of oil spill detection (OSD) systems. The heart of an oil spill detection system is the main processing unit, the place where raw information from the radar is collated with information received from navigation devices such as GPS, the gyrocompass, the speed log, and AIS. All information must be received over NMEA 0183 interfaces, and then processed in real time for immediate display. Due to the massive amount of highly varied real-time data that will be received, the OSD processing units require high performance CPUs capable of handling a heavy data load, that will reliably serve in a wide variety of extreme temperatures, humidity, and other environmental conditions.
