Working on the leading edge of emerging wireless technologies, WNUF must utilize test tools that are not readily available on the market. This requires them to define their own test tools via FPGAs. However, most FPGAs do not provide adequate flexibility when it comes to Input/Output (I/O) Protocol Awareness, and therefore, are not fast enough with onboard processing and real-time analysis.

The DoD US Navy NAVSEA NSWC Carderock has operated the William B Morgan Large Cavitation Channel (LCC) since 1991. The LCC is one of the world's largest and most technically advanced high speed, variable-pressure closed-loop water tunnel facilities. This facility is designed for a wide variety of hydrodynamic and hydro-acoustic tests. Its overall size and capabilities allow test model Reynolds numbers to approach, or even achieve, those of full-scale air or water-borne transportation systems.
