Parallel Computing for the Computed-Tomography Imaging Spectrometer
- Friday, 12 September 2008
This software computes the tomographic reconstruction of spatial-spectral data from raw detector images of the Com - puted-Tomography Imaging Spec trom - eter (CTIS), which enables transient-level, multi-spectral imaging by capturing spatial and spectral information in a single snapshot. The CTIS can be used for surveying planetary landscapes through spectral imaging. It can also be used for battlefield surveillance and the spectral imaging of live tissues for disease detection.
A Message Passing Interface Library (MPI) is used to parallelize the original serial version of the code without modifying its initial structure. By parallelizing the code, a speedup of up to 20 is reached by using 32 processors. The software does not use any thirdparty libraries that require licenses. It is written in Fortran and MPI, and the storage of matrix elements is efficient, thus reducing memory requirements.
