Ramon.Space is selected by Israeli Space Agency to provide a payload for space calculations for a mission scheduled to launch in early 2022.
As part of the mission, the Ramon.Space digital payload will perform orbit calculations, including software updates and upgrades, using the company’s programmable space systems. Ramon.Space high-performance computing systems are based on internal multi-core integrated circuits for Rad-Hard DSP space processors, complete with machine learning, storage and a virtual radiation shield designed to work reliably in harsh space environments.
Ramon.Space systems serve as a computing infrastructure for next-generation space applications such as communication, remote monitoring and networking. The company’s technology allows fully software-defined communication systems, including software-defined radio (SDR), sewers, intersatellite connections, space routing and digital beamforming to maximize bandwidth utilization and increase the flexibility and scalability of communications payloads. Ramon.Space’s high-performance, energy-efficient SW-defined systems pave the way for intelligent, autonomous satellites for LEO, MEO and GEO missions, increasing their capabilities in orbit.
“We are proud to work with the Israeli Space Agency and look forward to the launch, which will further confirm our advanced computing capabilities in space.,” said Avi Shabtai, Chief Executive Officer of Ramon.Space. “We continue to develop and advance our digital computing payloads, which focus on many other upcoming missions.”
“Space missions require Earth-like flexibility and a reliable computing infrastructure,” said Avi Blasberger, Director General of the Israeli Space Agency, part of the Ministry of Science and Technology. “We were very impressed with the computing capabilities that Ramon.Space offers. Ramon.Space is a reliable partner and we are confident that their cutting-edge space technology will set the direction for the future of computing in space and revolutionize digital payloads.”
Ramon.Space builds space-resistant supercomputer systems. Powered by its unique AI / ML processors, Ramon.Space’s software-defined systems allow the realization of terrestrial computing capabilities in space. The company’s proven technology has already been implemented in space and is used in many satellites and more than 50 space missions in the solar system. Ramon.Space has offices in the United States and Israel. For more information, visit www.ramon.space.
In addition, for the Israeli Space Agency and after a long selection process, the Professional Search Committee, chaired by the Director General of the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology, Shay-Lee Spiegelman, elected brigadier general (Res.)
