The Need for Robust Processing and
Storage
To achieve real-time trajectory
analysis, the SisTrO processors also
need to store the captured images as
well as determine the Reference Marks
(RM) 2D coordinates of each image
frame quickly. Such calculation requires processing 400 frames per second (fps) of high-resolution video,
which imposes a significant computational demand.

ronment. Therefore, its components
must offer high performance along
with reliability, ruggedness, and compactness, including MIL-STD-810E
compliance.
As IPEV continued to search for solutions to overcome the technical bottleneck of massive data transmission, EURESYS, a system integrator specializing
in producing frame grabbers, recommended ADL to IPEV.

Problem-Solving Approach
The Need for Reliable Performance in
a Rugged Environment
The third factor that adds complexity to the situation is that SisTrO must
run autonomously in an airborne envi-

tem performance delays or hardware
failures may have grave consequences.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications require the continuous collection, processing, and storage of a lot of
data in environments that are often remote and hostile. In addition, the form
factor of the single board computer
(SBC) must adhere strictly to space,
weight, and power (SWaP) requirements.
Therefore, the SBCs' ability to integrate
data sets, interoperate with other systems, and perform in a low-maintenance
and high-consistency manner will affect
the effectiveness of the IIoT application.
Designing an embedded system is a
complex process that involves various engineering teams in systems, mechanical,
thermal, electrical, cable, and software. In
addition, the design process requires
input from additional prototyping, testing, and quality control teams. It is critical to optimize the design, ensure the performance and reliability of the embedded
solutions, and increase design efficiency
and accuracy, so the costly and time-consuming cycle of redesigning and retesting
can be avoided.
Therefore, understanding the client's
need for flexibility and robust support
during product customization and development is extremely important. By
providing an initial solution with an
80% fit, ADL worked closely with the
client to get to the final 100% with the
turnkey system design service. In this
service, ADL provides customer consultation including conceptualization,
proof of concept, development/design,
prototype, pilot run, review, quality
control, and production. By supporting
the client with a holistic system development process that captures the complexity of requirements, specifications,
and changes that arise during system
development, ADL will reduce the overall cost and time for the client.

How ADL and Brazilian Air Force
Flight Test and Research Institute
(IPEV) made the project a success

In mission-critical industrial applications such as those in the aeronautical
environment, failure is unacceptable.
Many applications require real-time results. Therefore, timing is critical. Sys-

For years, the research team at the
Brazilian Air Force Flight Test and Research Institute (IPEV) has been trying
to integrate SisTrO's software into a
high-speed camera's internal FPGA.
However, intelectual property (IP) is-
