On-board computer or data processing unit? You choose!
Antelope has two versions and can work as an On-Board Computer (OBC) with an optional Data Processing Unit (DPU) or as a DPU payload module. OBC is the powerful heart of the satellite, responsible for satellite control and basic task performance such as communication handling, monitoring the satellite’s subsystems, handling the classic Fault Detection, Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) mechanism and performing planned tasks.
Thanks to the powerful FPGA system (160 GOPS) DPU can also handle complicated on-board data processing tasks enabling Earth Observation (EO), telecommunication and other demanding data processing applications.
The On-Board Computer PC-104 form factor, based on Hercules RM57 expanded with 8 or 16 MB of MRAM and 4 or 8 GB of NAND Flash memory
The Data Processing Unit module supports the calculations with Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC expanded with 8 GB of DDR4 and 4 GB of NAND Flash
Antelope is a perfect solution for anyone who wants to run their algorithms and perform data or signal processing on board. This DPU gives infinite space processing possibilities – analysing images from cameras connected to the Antelope or telemetry from other satellite subsystems has never been so easy.
Additionally, the Antelope can be equipped with SATA SSD extra storage that allows it to keep all the data needed for smooth space mission’ completion. You can also use algorithms from The Herd by KP Labs that are 100% compatible with this solution.
Antelope is part of the Smart Mission Ecosystem – hardware, software, and AI-powered algorithms designed to complete your mission.
Expert tool for annotating anomalous signals
We create an anomaly annotator graphical tool for labelling time series data. This tool is based on the open-source TRAINSET application by Geocene Inc. However, we significantly improved it in terms of performance and added a bunch of features for working with long multi-channel time series (such as satellite telemetry). Go to website.
PW-Sat3 is an in-orbit demonstrator of new cold gas propulsion and is planned to be launched in late 2024.
Antelope will be responsible for satellite management and mission safety.
