Advanced Hybrid On-Board Data Processor - SpaceCube 2.0

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Develop advanced on-board processing to meet the requirements of the Decadal Survey missions:
advanced instruments (hyper-spectral, SAR, etc) require advanced on-board processing to facilitate the timely conversion of ES “data” into ES “information”
mission enabling technology to reconfigure/adapt on the fly; detect and react to events; produce data products on-board for direct downlink, quick look, and “first responder” real-time awareness; enable “sensor web” multi-platform collaboration; and perform on- board “lossless” data reduction by moving “ground” functions on-board

SpaceCube 2.0 will directly support ACE, DESDynI, GEO-CAPE, HyspIRI, ICESat-II, LIST, SCLP, SMAP, SWOT, and 3D-Winds.
