ASC Report Summary

Project ID: 663564

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ASC (Amorphous Speculative Compression)

Reporting period: 2015-03-01 to 2015-08-31

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

During the time of project execution the main objectives, that were pursued and also achieved were:
IP protection analysis and plan
Business model analysis and creation
Analyzing the use on industrial microcontrollers, expanded to use on CPU's , GPU's and APU's.
Sample demonstration and analysis tools, to validate feasibility of technology sub-segments and for presentation needs.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

Team building – individuals, necessary for initial work (feasibility studies) found as well as part of the programmers team for Part 2
IP protection analysis – many IP protection types analyzed, results used for other strategic decisions
Simulation tools – older (Arctic) simulation tools acquired and transformed for the new use. New tools developed to test and simulate the following aspects: Full and accelerated in-line anchor detection, in-line and spacial pattern detection, statistical representation of graphics, inherent frame similarity utilization
Business model analysis – different business models analyzed, business path chosen and taken
CPU performance needs analysis – several scenarios for different sensor geometries and processor architectures
Space mission analysis – several target markets identified, including possible future projects and partners and risks involved with individual markets
Partner relations – partners identified, communications established, some agreements already signed, some in preparation
Business tools preparation – roadmaps, business strategies and plans prepared and already being followed

Coaching is not finished yet. Therefore it was not possible to rate the coaching activity. The actual rating will be done later.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

Strategic partnership with one of the major players in CPU industry, providing access to the widest market, co-financing for the phase 2 and help with IP protection
Shared IP protection with strategic partner, providing ability to simultaneously protect IP worldwide
Business strategy and plan, providing better insight into business related matters, clearer future path and a business presentation tool in communication with the partners.
