Scheduled for a November launch aboard D-Orbit’s OTV – ION Satellite Carrier, the Antelope On-Board Computer (OBC), integrated with its Data Processing Unit (DPU), represents a noteworthy step in on-board satellite data processing. This deployment will mark the inaugural space mission for Antelope. Primary Functions of the Antelope Subsystem Monitoring: The Antelope is a guardian […]
Antelope On-board Computer: Technical Insights Ahead of the Launch
Intuition-1: Integration of Leopard DPU and Optical Instrument with platform bus
In August, the project reached a significant milestone: the integration of KP Labs’ payload with the platform bus to form a complete spacecraft – Intuition-1. The payload, while crucial, is just one piece of the puzzle. Our satellite covers a lot of capabilities. From an on-board computer managing operations and Earth communications to an EPS […]
Intuition-1: A Synthesis of Knowledge and Vision
Visualization of the Intuition-1 satellite. Set to launch into orbit in just one month (November 2023), we at KP Labs have embarked on the ambitious Intuition-1 satellite project. With its compact CubeSat 6U design (30x20x10 cm), this venture isn’t just another satellite. What exactly is Intuition-1? Intuition-1 is a satellite mission designed to observe the […]
Boosting In-Orbit Cloud Detection with AI
KP Labs advances the next generation of Earth observation (EO) satellites with artificial intelligence and autonomous software. Deep learning models can process Earth’s frequent cloudy coverage onboard these satellites. The team has been developing a novel in-orbit Cloud Detection Application for the European Space Agency’s Φ-sat-2 mission powered by deep learning.
