Prototype of the Smart Processing Module
The SPM is an On-Board Computer (OBC) in the form of a SoM (System-on-Module), or in other words: a single-PCB computer. Application scenarios for the SPM are high data rate and high data throughput applications like camera data processing for e.g. Earth Observation (EO)
in NewSpace missions. We have successfully developed a first prototype of the Smart Processing Module which was part of our activity as an ESA business incubatee. First testing showed promising performance on parallel computing and distribution of tasks!
