Research Institution
MaXentric's is proposing a radiation tolerant Software Define Video Processor, codenamed SDVP, for the problem of advanced motion imaging in the space environment. SDVP will take advantage of state of the art rad-hard by design (RHBD) manycore processors to provide radiation tolerant reprogrammable encoder, video enhancement, and other video processing capabilities for HDTV, digital cinema camera, and other image sensors used in the operations on orbit, while withstanding radiation damage that degrades image quality and performance. Furthermore SDVP will improve the motion imaging technology in the space by offering standard compliance flexibility, multimode operation and power management capabilities. As missions evolve, parameters change that can affect the ideal motion imaging configurations. SDVR highly programmable platform will make it easy to upload patches, upgrades, and new applications and improvements, hence providing "Future-proof" video processing and over-the-air reconfiguration. SDVP can support other applications in parallel with video processing, reducing SWaP of the greater system.
