Image Processing Systems

Space Micro offers an extremely high-performance image processing product line based on strong flight heritage. Utilizing our legacy high-performance digital computing product heritage, Space Micro has developed an inflight configurable product to satisfy various mission needs. Our original IPC system flew on the DoD's TACSAT-2, followed by an improved system that is currently operational on ORS-1 (>4 years in orbit). The primary mission of these systems is to take high-speed optical or sensor data, perform image processing, non-uniformity correction and image compression packetization of data, and data storage which is then typically down-linked via a high-speed mission data transmitter.
