Low-power DSP-based processor board for micro-satellites

spheres[1]MIT Space Systems Laboratory chose Sundance’s C6701 processor board for the International Space Station’s microsatellites.

SPHERES is a program which operates multiple micro-satellites aboard the International Space Station. The free-floating autonomous satellites help researchers at MIT, NASA, other research institutions, and private industry to mature technologies for Distributed Satellite Systems. The satellites are used to develop metrology, control, and autonomy algorithms for tasks such as autonomous docking and satellite formation flight.
