Multicore rad hard processing in space, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Multicore rad hard processing in space, Phase I
Space Micro proposes to research and develop a high performance computing/processing platform for NASA space missions. Leveraging our previous work for both NASA and DoD we will apply our patented techniques for space radiation mitigation and hardening which will allow very advanced COTS processors to survive in space environments. Use of high speed emerging multicore processors enables unprecedented throughput in space to support new missions and applications. At the end of Phase 1 we will have demonstrated, by analysis and limited lab testing, the technical feasibility.(TRL=2-3). In Phase 2 we will develop an engineering model of this processing card, and demonstrate in relevant ground-based radiation simulators (Proton, heavy ion)- TRL=5-6 at end of Phase 2, and ready to launch as a standard space product.
