Pegasus is a mission-processing platform for SmallSats that builds on the successful space flight approach for ASDR — radiation hardening of system-critical components combined with careful selection, monitoring, and recovery of the latest generation of processors and sensors.


Modular Design

  • Customization is available to meet mission needs
  • Processor and converter are integrated on a single card to minimize costs
  • RF front end is a separate card to allow for mission-specific customization

Flat System Architecture

  • Single thermal plane simplifies thermal interfacing requirements
  • Flat interface simplifies integration

Flexible and Extendable Design

  • Multiple high-speed interfaces are available
  • Several common input/output (I/O) interfaces allow for integration with other satellite subsystems and between multiple Pegasus cards for coherent RF sampling

Additional Services


  • Hardware modifications
  • User-defined modules
  • Mission app development
  • Additional screening/qualification
