FaDO goes SPACE. Autonomous Intelligence (AI) will increasingly play a first violin in future space endeavours. Monitoring, taking action on this information, and communicating will be key for long-haul mission as e.g. for asteroid mining. Technology that is mature enough to handle SPACE is solid enough to handle our precious bank transactions. And vice versa.
Why FaDO then? FaDO’s emphasis on computational efficiency, robustness and handling fast, complex information streams makes this a direct match:
- It is not very likely that future satellites come with their own data-centres, so we need to do things as efficient as possible. Even with future computational hardware, energy will constrain the computational efforts.
- Black-outs, atmospheric aberrations or solar winds will often throw off communication channels. Even in such events, operation has to be maintained in a guaranteed way. Extended earth-bound testing is not really a useful proxy for this since approaches must adopt to the (non-earth-bound) situation well.
- Modern satellite sensors generate a waterfall of data. Shipping them all off to earth and waiting for the appropriate response from earth is just no option for long-haul missions. So data flows need to be processed onboard. With the limited resources.
We provide Autonomous Intelligence in the form of software, and provide ready-to-use solutions through our partners. FaDO has 3 immediate use cases here:
- Adaptive beamforming for long-haul communication.
- Adaptive Compression for low-energy communication.
- Adaptive onboard processing for increased responsiveness in long-haul missions.
