RUAG Space has developed “Lynx” – a powerful new computer for satellites, and the timing couldn’t be better for its launch. Lynx is 250 times more powerful than many of the on-board computers in use today, perfectly meeting the artificial intelligence and machine learning requirements of space development programmes. This is a giant leap forward in space computer processing power. The Lynx Single Board Computer is designed to last more than 15 years, making it the optimal solution for customers who require a large amount of processing power over a long period of time with extremely high reliability. Because as they say: “There is no IT support in space”
Development and manufacturing take place in connection with the European Space Agency’s ARTES (Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems) programme mission and were carried out at RUAG Space in Gothenburg, Sweden.
