A computational engine for on-board instrument science data processing and management based on next-generation flight-qualifiable system-on-a-chip processors
A computational engine for on-board instrument science data processing and management based on next-generation flight-qualifiable system-on-a-chip processors.

This analysis capability is a systems engineering function that integrates modeling, mission simulation, data analysis, computational technologies, data management, and visualization to help formulate and validate advanced instrument and associated payload systems. The goal of this new, yet maturing, area is to establish a simulation-oriented basis for developing, validating, and adopting new smart-instrument technologies and associated flight architectures for the next generation of Earth and space exploration systems missions. Innovations proving how proposed single and multi-instrument designs meet science objectives, interactive visualization and data analysis tools tied to real-time and/or archived observation data, validation of proposed measurement concepts in hardware/software testbeds, and implementation of on-board processing and mode-control algorithms at the instrument using reconfigurable system-on-a-chip processors are some of the technologies pursued in this area.
