With more and more algorithms migrating from ground computing to onboard computing an efficient dedicated architecture of WAGIR is desired. In this paper a BWAGIR architecture is proposed based on a block resampling scheme. BWAGIR achieves a significant performance by pipelining computational logics parallelizing the resampling process and the calculation of correlation coefficient and parallel memory access. A proof-of-concept implementation with 1 BWAGIR processing unit of the architecture performs at least faster than the CL cluster system with 1 node and at least than the MPM massively parallel machine with 1 node. Further speedup can be achieved by parallelizing multiple BWAGIR units. The architecture with 5 units achieves a speedup of about 3X against the CL with 16 nodes and a comparative speed with the MPM with 30 nodes. More importantly the BWAGIR architecture can be deployed onboard economically. Copyright 2009 Baofeng Li et al.
