OBDA: Onboard Data Autonomy for Next Generation Earth Observing Nanosatellites

The aim of this project was to unlock potential of Earth observing nanosatellites for onboard data autonomy to deliver a higher mission return. Craft Prospect led a consortium including Bright Ascension, University College London and University of Manchester investigating emerging technologies and techniques for enabling onboard data autonomy targeted for the low resources available on nanosatellites. The work surveyed existing missions and techniques and looked out of sector including algorithms used in autonomous vehicles and commercial machine learning.
