Paper Abstract

On board Image compression is a very powerful tool to optimize the onboard resources needed to store and transmit image data to ground. This is due to the steady performance improvements of the compression algorithms and to the availability, for spaceborne applications, of highly integrated circuits (ASIC technology) that made it possible to implement very sophisticated real-time schemes. We propose in this paper a survey of on on-board image compression with emphasis on some compression architectures and present the future prospects.
