Sonar Processing using GPUs
In recent years Sonar processing systems have migrated from custom hardware to open system architecture with many off-the-shelf components. With the rapid increase in the computing capacity of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) it is attractive to have computational intensive algorithms run on GPUs. However it is cumbersome to implement such software using the parallel programming techniques required for GPU. HPCGen have developed a cross-compiler that converts high level Matlab compatible source code to executables for GPU or multi-core CPU with no programming effort required.
