Ongoing activities

The development activities led by the On-board payload processing section mostly fall under the research and development category. Our developments aim to advance the state-of-the-art technologies for on-board data processing, and our focus is directed towards developing technologies for faster and more efficient on-board processing i.e. digital signal processors, on-board networks and protocols and on-board storage.

Developments are funded through different funding schemes under the ESA Generic Technology Programmes such as e.g. Basic Technology Research Programme (TRP), General Support Technology Programme (GSTP), Innovation Triangle Initiative (ITI), General Studies Programme (GSP) and Network Partnering Initiatives (NPI) to name a few. In the menu to the right you can browse through projects that are currently ongoing.
