SAN DIEGO, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Space Micro Inc., powered by Voyager Space, recently delivered a total of seven (7) Flight Level Single Board Computers (SBCs) to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Pasadena, California for the Solar Radio Interferometer (SunRISE) space experiment.
Scheduled for launch in 2024-2025, SunRISE will collect data from a network of small satellites to help scientists better understand how the Sun generates and releases storms of solar particles into space and how these storms influence the environment. interplanetary. Space Micro’s SBCs contribute to the mission by performing onboard data processing.
According to JPL, SunRISE relies on six solar-powered CubeSats – each the size of a toaster oven – to simultaneously observe radio images of low-frequency emissions of solar activity and share them via Deep Space. NASA Network. The CubeSats constellation will fly within 10 kilometers of each other, above Earth’s atmosphere, which would otherwise block the radio signals that SunRISE will observe. Together, the six CubeSats will create 3D maps to identify the origin of bursts of giant particles on the Sun and their evolution as they expand into space. This, in turn, will help determine what is triggering and accelerating these giant radiation jets. The six individual spacecraft will also work together to map, for the first time, the pattern of magnetic field lines extending from the Sun into interplanetary space.
“Space Micro is honored to be part of the SunRISE team and contribute technology to this innovative mission. This mission expands our collaboration with JPL, being the third JPL mission our team has supported. JPL continues to dare powerful things and we look forward to seeing what the team develops next,” said Space Micro Executive Chairman, David J.Strobel.
Space Micro’s comprehensive suite of rugged computing platforms also includes the quad-core Proton400K™ SBC and octal-core Proton600K™ Space VPX SBC, which support a wide range of applications. The company has provided space processors for cislunar, GEO, HEO, and LEO applications for several U.S. and international civil and national security space programs, with some processors still operating in orbit more than a decade after launch.
“Space Micro continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible, and we’re proud of the impact the company is having not just on SunRISE – but on large-scale space research and exploration,” said declared Dylan Taylor, CEO and President of Voyager Space. “Voyager is designed to accelerate the success of our technologies and capabilities, and Space Micro continues to demonstrate that vision.”
