Low-power Graphical Processing Unit (LPGPU) are high-performance devices suitable for data parallel workloads, such as image and video processing; they are found in devices we use every day ranging from mobile phones to smart TVs as well as laptops and high-performance computers. Their use in on-board space applications has not yet been investigated in Europe but it could enable missions with extremely high processing requirements, as can be payload processing for scientific or Earth observation missions as well as autonomous closed loop controlled space applications, such as active debris removal, orbital rendezvous and landing. Overall this activity aims at paving the way for the use of such commercially widespread devices in the space domain.
