ENABLING ONBOARD INTELLIGENCE
Deploy artificial intelligence safely and reliably across flight platforms to achieve your mission objectives.
Spacefarer AI has deployed deep learning neural networks on flight computers for two missions: in Earth orbit and on the lunar surface. Our AI team has also supported several concept studies and field tests to offer AI-based autonomy.
from Start to Finish
Use our data, model, and deployment pipeline and tools to ensure robust and reliable autonomous capability. Start with data and model selection and then pick your embedded deployment target.
Data & Model Pipeline
Build explainable, tested neural networks for rovers, satellites, and stations.
Easily deploy to different Systems-on-a-Chip from different manufacturers, hybridizing across the CPU and FPGA for added efficiency.
See AI product outputs and intelligent overlays, making the most of the Human-AI team.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Modern AI approaches are a game changer for spacecraft autonomy, but to use them we needed tools and techniques that work with space missions such as our upcoming deployment of our MoonNet AI model on the lunar surface.
MoonNet is designed to rapidly classify lunar surface features in camera images, enabling a wide range of autonomous tasks from navigation to instrument targeting.
However, as we moved towards deploying MoonNet on a flight processor, we discovered several challenges.
Our AI payload is on the way to the Moon!
We’re excited to be the first to show how Deep Learning can be used for a lunar rover mission in mid-2023.
In early 2023, we are performing our first in-flight test of how Spacefarer AI can deploy AI models, leveraging the OPS-SAT satellite by the European Space Agency.
