NanoMind HP MK3

NanoMind HP MK3 is designed to support High Performance, yet efficient, on-board processing and H/W acceleration functions needed to meet the increasing demands of complex payloads. With a wide range of interfaces, configurable I/O and support for in orbit updates, NanoMind HP MK3 is a highly flexible and customizable platform. It is used in a wide range of applications ranging from a general-purpose Onboard Computer (OBC) or Data Processing Unit (DPU) to a dedicated Payload Processor. 

Typical customer applications include data reduction using compression algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for Earth Observation and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data processing. If security and reliability are of concern, then the NanoMind HP MK3 is a perfect H/W acceleration platform for Encryption and Error Correction for Command and Data security.

NanoMind HP MK3 includes development kits for getting started with software application and FPGA firmware development.  GomSpace also offers a training program to kick-start and support customer development process.
