Paper Abstract

An overview of the signal processor for the Space-Based Visible sensor system is presented. This signal processor, based on a 20 MHz Motorola DSP56001, places significant processing power into a satellite environment. The signal processor hardware and its real-time executive and applications software are briefly described. Typical performance figures are given, based on scenes taken by a ground-based telescope and processed by prototype hardware and software.
