Paper Abstract

The first part of the article gives a brief examination of the state of art in terms of methodologies, hardware available and algorithms used in space applications. Particular emphasis is given to the lossless algorithms used and their characterization. In the second part a more detailed analysis, in terms of data entropy, is presented. At the end the preliminary results in the determination of compressibility of the file will be presented.
