Summary

Ibeos provides bus and payload computing solutions suitable for all types of space environments. The company's radiation tolerant EDGE payload processors provide on-board processing power that ranges from 300 GFLOPS to >1 TFLOPS. Ibeos' assemblies provide a mix of serial interfaces for communicating with bus and payload assemblies. Custom configurations are also available.

Ibeos' EDGE Payload Processor is a radiation-tolerant, high-performance, and flexible platform capable of order-of-magnitude processing improvements over state-of-the-art spacecraft computers. The EDGE's architecture is built around highly parallelizable graphics processing unit (GPU) technology. The card provides a 192-core GPU as its primary compute engine, within a radiation-tolerant architecture, providing on-orbit computational throughput that is unrivaled at the EDGE's size, weight, and power. The EDGE enables a new generation of highly capable and affordable on-orbit processing in a package suitable for most spacecraft.

Potential mission applications using EDGE payload processors include:

  • Image manipulation, comparison, acquisition, and processing
  • RF signal processing
  • Computer vision for proximity and remote docking ops
  • Software defined radio and channelizing
  • Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data processing
  • Data packetization and compression

The 1U form-factor EDGE provides processing capability in a size, weight, and power envelope that is compatible with CubeSat standards. High-speed data, command and control interfaces further enable integration flexibility. The EDGE card’s expansion header provides for custom carrier card development and greater mission applicability and interface flexibility.

Ibeos' EDGE Processor is also available with a customizable 3U expansion card for easy integration into a 3U SpaceVPX chassis. The 3U expansion card enables a selection of additional high-speed data interfaces to the backplane, broken out through a radiation-tolerant FPGA.

This product is available internationally, free of ITAR export controls.
