Space-time adaptive processing (STAP) utilizes a two-dimensional adaptive filter to detect targets within a radar data set with speeds similar to the background clutter. While adaptively optimal solutions exist, they are prohibitively computationally intensive. Thus, researchers have developed alternative algorithms with nearly optimal filtering performance and greatly reduced computational intensity. While such alternatives reduce the computational requirements, the computational burden remains significant and efficient implementations of such algorithms remains an area of active research. This paper focuses on an efficient graphics processor unit (GPU) based implementation of the extended factored algorithm (EFA) using the compute unified device architecture (CUDA) framework provided by NVIDIA.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
