Carnegie Mellon Engineering brings orbital edge tech to nanosatellites

Satellite

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) College of Engineering have received a $7 million (£5.8m) grant for their orbital edge computing initiative.

Coming from the National Science Foundation, the funding will allow the Pittsburgh-based CMU to reimagine nanosatellite capabilities by shaping them into sophisticated edge computing platforms.

CMU anticipates the initiative will build the foundation for use cases across a wide range of novel applications in...
