Enhanced mission autonomy through on-board Artificial Intelligence for next generation spacecraft

Project description

More autonomous satellites thanks to onboard AI

The microsatellite and conventional satellite market is growing rapidly, supporting important services including communications and Earth observation. While other systems from industrial robots to cars are becoming increasingly autonomous, satellites have not followed this trend. The Italian SME AIKO has developed MiRAGE, the first AI-based in-flight software designed to allow increased mission autonomy for microsatellites and conventional satellites. The software will not only enable faster responses to potential problems but also slash the manpower required to command and control the satellites and their missions. The EU-funded MiRAGE project is validating the compatibility of MiRAGE with most microsatellites’ and conventional satellites’ onboard computing architectures in preparation for commercialisation.
