Edge Computing in Space: Necessity or Luxury?

The increasing reliance on data for decision-making and the rising number of exploration missions, and EO constellations with high resolution sensors with increased revisit frequencies is growing data generated onboard satellite exponentially. However, the bottleneck on the ground to handle data poses a challenge to obtain low latency actionable insights for critical decision making. Thus,.

Data Downlink: The Shining Star of Satellite-Based Cloud Services

Obtaining data from space remains a massive bottleneck yet to be resolved. The increasing resolution of space-based sensors, data collected at higher revisit rates and the lack of onboard memory or relay systems for massive amounts of information from scientific missions all contribute to the current downlink bottleneck experienced by many operators and scientists. Due.
