The main objectives are:
- to bring together and foster cooperation between different experts in the space data handling, processing, and components fields.
- to discuss architecture / reference design / component development / performance of current and future data handling - processing hardware for space.
- to establish closer links between industry and international / national space agencies to enable further developments in these fields. The main technical topics are Satellite End-to-end data handling and processing architectures, Reference designs for platform, optical & RF payloads data systems, Buses, networks & protocols and OBDP (On-Board Data and Signal Processing). The conference will additionally aim to unite the communities involved in the SpaceWire Working Group conference (Dr. Felix Siegle, part of the Technical Committee) and OBDP - European Workshop on On-Board Data Processing (Mr. David Steenari, part of the Technical Committee).
