eo - science and isr

Whether it is single band, multi-spectral, or hyperspectral imagers, EO payloads generate immense amounts of data to be transferred and processed. Xiphos processors are imbedded in payload electronics of every phenomenology and our daughterboards interface directly with the camera electronics such as the Q8 Camera Board (Hyperlink) on the GHGSat environmental monitoring constellation.
