2 Purpose of the Briefing To inform the FPGA user community of the formation of the FPAG Mission Assurance Center (FMAC)its missionits goalsits activitiesandTo solicit suggestions on how FMAC can serve the FPGA user community better
3 FPGA Mission Assurance Center A New Mexico-based center of excellence to promote and enable the successful application of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in space and defense systemsCOLLABORATIVE TEAMAir Force Research Laboratory/Space Vehicles DirectorateSandia National LaboratoriesLos Alamos National LaboratoryUniversity of New MexicoXILINX CorporationATK/Mission ResearchSchafer CorporationSES ConsultantsAmerican Defense Technology Institute
4 FMAC ObjectivesEstablish and operate a Design Center to support terrestrial, airborne, and space-based defense system programs in the application of FPGAsDevelop guidelines and qualification procedures for FPGA applications and compile a database of FPGA test data to support informed design decisionsConduct R&D of FPGA design tools, radiation effects mitigation, reliability enhancement, testability, trustworthiness, and remote reconfigurationEstablish and operate an education program to train existing and future system designers on proper, efficient, and reliable application of FPGAsRecommend policies and procedures for a trusted and ITAR compliant supply chain for FPGAs and the trustworthiness and tamper resistance of FPGAs in space and defense applicationsAssess the future market for FPGAs and FPGA design tools and plan for accommodating advances in commercial FPGAs in space/defense systems
6 Collaborative team process very successful! FMAC – Program StatusMay 05: Collaborative Team formedJun - Sep 05: Program goals, objectives, statement of work, and cost estimate developed by Team under AFRL/VS and Sandia National Labs sponsorship.Oct - Nov 05: Contract proposal prepared by Team and submitted in response to AFRL/VS Broad Agency Announcement under Space Electronics topicMay 06: Contract awarded to American Defense Technology Institute (ADTI) with all other Team members as subcontractorsEstimated contract cost - $32M over 5 yearsCollaborative team process very successful!
7 Recognizing the vast experience and knowledge in the FPGA user community, FMAC welcomes feedbackssuggestions, andpotential joint efforts
