Khoral, Inc. offers service contracts for both custom software
development and Khoros customization.
The following is a sampling of Khoral's government contract experience
in both areas.
Government Contract Experience
about Khoral Software Development Services.
- Adaptive Computing Systems (ACS)
To simplify development of image processing solutions on adaptive
computing systems, Khoral developed a visual workspace compiler
that generates Serial Assignment C (SA-C) code from a visual
- Khoros Enhancements for HPC and Advanced Vision Systems(AVIS)
The goal of this three-year effort was to develop a
comprehensive software development environment that supports the
entire lifecycle of HPC, real-time and embedded applications.
This program extended the Khoros software development environment
and its infrastructure to support high performance computing, parallel
processing and distributed systems, automatic code generation for
deployment of algorithms to real-time and embedded systems, and
added a visual workspace compiler.
This project created a shrink-wrapped Khoros-based remote sensing
and multispectral visualization toolbox for use by USGS.
- HPC Embedded Applications for Target Recognition(HEATR)
This program implemented parallelized versions of a set of ATR
algorithms, with a goal to produce high performance, portable
algorithms that perform in near real-time on a variety of computing
- Integrated Precision SAR Targeting Program(IPSART)
The goal of the IPSART system was to develop a high fidelity end-to-end
simulation for realistic SAR targeting in a hostile environment for
highly maneuverable tactical platforms. The IPSART program was
developed under Khoros, and this contract implemented Khoros
enhancements for modeling and simulation, as well as integration of
the IPSART Navigation model into Khoros.
- Porting of ISV Software to Parallel Architectures (MAUI)
Khoral ported Khoros to the IBM SP2, developed a library of
parallelized image processing operators optimized for the IBM SP2,
Cray T3D, Cray T3E, and SGI Origin 2000 systems.
- Multi-Sensor Exploitation Toolkit (MSET)
The MSET program applied automated, advanced technologies to an
operational sensor, and developed the spectral exploitation tools to
support future hyper-spectral programs. Khoros was the software
development and integration environment for MSET; thus, KI had a key
role in the system integration of the algorithms developed under the
MSET program. Khoral also developed an interactive hyper-spectral
visualization application for MSET users.
- Performance Estimation of ATR Systems (PEATRS)
The objective of the PEATRS program was to extend Khoros to support
ATR algorithm development, validation, evaluation, and system
integration. KI's provided a complete software system integration
environment with software development tools, visualization tools, and a
highly portable infrastructure for ATR programs such as MSTAR. A Cray
T3E port of Khoros was also done under this program.
- Visual Interactive Programming for Enterprise Research (VIPER)
The goal of this AFRL Phase II SBIR program is to extend Khoros to
operate within the Collaborative Engineering Environment (CEE),
seamlessly supporting collaborative development and component reuse.
