Abstract: In this paper we present the results of building and running a knowledge-based signal interpretation program on multiprocessors. A serial, knowledge-based program to interpret passive radar signals from multiple sites was redesigned and reimplemented on a framework for concurrent problem solving. The primary objective for the use of multiprocessors was to gain performance improvement. A number of experiments were performed to evaluate the performance gains under varying circumstances. Factors that motivate and constrain problem solving in parallel in general, and real-time signal interpretation in particular, are discussed.
