The proposed work seeks to drastically increase the capability of the lossless data compression technology embedded in the currently used flight part known as USES (Universal Source Encoder for Space). USES met the CCSDS 121-0-B 1 recommendation. New advances to the lossless data compression electronic technology which advances the current flight electronics device: • Increase quantization levels to 32 bits; the current device supports only 15 bits. • Support multi-frequency simultaneous inputs, at least three to represent color inputs. • Increase speed from 20 MSamples/sec to 200 M Samples/sec • Realize in a radiation tolerant 0.25 micron CMOS process
