Main Objectives of this activity are
multiMIND processing core
Key challenge of this development is to enable a safe operation of latest MPSoC chip technology in space and to build a cubesat-ready product, which can be efficiently used for a variety of different mission profiles requiring efficient processing capabilities.
See Product Information Sheet for details
Seeing the need of a reliable usage of high performance COTS parts, multiMIND consists out of 2 functional domains:
Non-vital functions can benefit from the performance of COTS hardware as well as COTS software and firmware. Essential functions are implemented using rad-hard space components.
ARTES C&G Product and Demo Phase Kick-off: August 2020
Critical Design Review and EM testing: September 2020
Flight Hardware delivery: Apr 2021
Satellite Launch: second half of 2021
In-Orbit Demonstration: 2021/2022
Definition Phase and Technology Phase have been successfully completed. These included feasibility study, requirements consolidation and several derisking activities (e.g. hardware breadboarding and software prototyping) to prepare for an efficient and fast Development Phase.
Development Phase has started in early 2020 anticipating the present ESA project formally launched in August 2020. Currently EM built-up is ongoing in parallel to CDR preparation.
