SG200 Space Computer Selected as Semifinalist for NASA iTech Cycle 3

NASA ITech_announcement

Current and future spacecrafts require much more robust and affordable space-rated computers than are currently available on the market. The Business Integra Technology Solutions (BI Tech) SG200 project will leverage experience and hardware design from heritage systems (existing ISS Flight Hardware and the SG100 TRL-9 ISS payload hardware) to build a deep-space environment capable radiation tolerant single board computer for use on Low Earth orbit (LEO) and geosynchronous spacecraft as well as deep space missions. The SG200 white paper will deliver the next generation of high reliability, high performance low-cost radiation tolerant single board computer avionics infrastructure that can be used across many applications. With demonstrated processing speeds of 1.5GHz using multicore processors and its modern “blade-based” modular and expandable design, it is ideal for non-critical, data processing intensive applications. This will be done in such a manner that it will not be cost-prohibitive for commercial, institutional and government space-flight engineers and researchers, as is the currently available less capable older technology computers.
