A reconfigurable computing (RC) platform called SPACE (Seismic data Processing Accelerator with reConfigurable Engine) is proposed to accelerate the execution of 3D prestack Kirchhoff time migration (PSTM) based on the optimized 6th order NMO Correction technology (Sun et. al. 2002). Our simulations demonstrated up to 22 X performance improvement on the proposed RC platform comparing with the pure software solution running on a P4 2.4 GHz referential Linux workstation. This RC platform is also consistent with prevailing PC-Cluster systems and can achieve much better price-performance ratio along with much lower power consumption.
