NASHUA, N.H. – Military + Aerospace Electronics extends a warm invitation to its forthcoming webinar scheduled for February 21, 2024. The focus of this webinar is to explore the pivotal role of artificial intelligence (AI)-based onboard processing in the realm of edge computing satellites. Proudly sponsored by Infineon Technologies, located in El Segundo, Calif., this event is poised to illuminate the transformative potential of AI in satellite applications.
Revolutionizing satellite technology with AI-powered onboard processing
In the dynamic landscape of satellite technology, AI-based onboard processing emerges as a game-changing paradigm. This cutting-edge technology brings forth a plethora of advantages, including reduced bandwidth consumption, expedited decision-making, enhanced security measures, improved autonomy, and scalability. One of the primary catalysts driving this transformation is the ability to bring processing power closer to the data source, a concept popularly known as satellite edge computing.
Satellite edge computing: Catalyzing real-time processing for enhanced efficiency
Satellite edge computing signifies a paradigm shift in satellite architecture. By harnessing the computational capabilities of advanced Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), this approach enables real-time data processing in space. Despite FPGAs being more power-hungry compared to traditional microprocessors, their adaptability makes them the preferred choice. This adaptability is of paramount importance in satellite operations, given the inherent limitations of power and exposure to radiation, which necessitate flexible hardware configurations.
Infineon Technologies: Pioneering AI-based onboard processing
Infineon Technologies, a prominent player in the semiconductor industry, assumes a pivotal role in advancing AI-based onboard processing for edge computing satellites. Their wealth of expertise and innovative solutions have played a substantial role in propelling the evolution of satellite technology.
