Paper Abstract

With both the increased importance of multispectral remote sensing from space-based platforms and the growth of observation data collected, new and innovative ways of collecting, processing, and storing data are becoming equally important. New collection systems are growing faster and larger which drives the need for quicker processing and greater storage capacities. To meet these needs Harris has designed and built the solid state compressive recorder (SSCR). The SSCR contains nineteen 32-bit rad-hard processors, a full duplex non-blocking cross-bar switch, and more than 2 GBytes of bulk memory. This system can perform onboard image processing and data reduction on multispectral, hyperspectral, or ultraspectral images and store the data in a format which suits the need of the end user. For optical remote sensing applications, the Harris SSCR exceeds the capability of any current fielded onboard processing system.
