The KP Labs Antelope can work as an On-Board Computer (OBC) with an optional Data Processing Unit (DPU) or as a data processing unit (DPU).

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.

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.
