Multicore processors are dominating the scene of comput- ing, and have provided a way to keep improving perform- ance while circumventing the power as well as the memory bandwidth wall. The IBM Cell Broadband Engine is a het- erogeneous multicore which as been designed with high throughput in mind. This paper explores its applicability to data processing, and reports the performance results on some important RADAR processing algorithms. Initial re- sults are very promising and highlight the disruptive poten- tial of this technology.
