September 20, 2022 — PARIS, France. — CAES, a pacesetter in superior mission-critical electronics for aerospace and protection, is happy to announce that it has signed a multi-year contract with Jena-Optronik to ship flight grade GR740 quad-core LEON4FT SPARC V8 Microprocessor units for its next-generation sensor merchandise.
The official contract signing will happen in particular person on the Worldwide Astronautical Congress (IAC), within the Swedish pavilion on September 20, 2022, in Paris, France. The CEO of Jena-Optronik, Peter Kapell and CAES Gaisler Product’s Basic Supervisor, Sandi Habinc will likely be in attendance.
“CAES has an extended line of confirmed LEON know-how with a legacy of robustness to be used in numerous area functions like LiDAR and star sensors so we’re excited to signal this contract with Jena-Optronik and proceed our heritage,” mentioned Mike Elias, Vice President and Basic Supervisor, CAES House Division. “Along with delivering flight confirmed know-how, CAES is understood for its professional technical help which units it aside within the aerospace business.”
The CAES GR740 microprocessor was chosen for its software program reuse, decrease energy, and elevated processing energy. The usual interfaces, scalable efficiency and ease of design allow the addition of much more functionality to future missions whereas sustaining the identical fundamental infrastructure for different designs/merchandise.
Jena-Optronik, based mostly in Thuringia, Germany, is a worldwide chief within the improvement and manufacturing of opto-electronic sensors for the Angle and Orbit Management Methods (AOCS) of satellites and spacecraft. Jena-Optronik’s present technology of star sensors in addition to LiDAR sensors make the most of CAES’s GR712RC, a dual-core LEON3FT SPARC V8 microprocessor.
“Given our excellent expertise with the prior technology LEONFT Processors, Jena-Optronik is wanting ahead to the following technology GR740, which can allow extra computing energy whereas assembly the required decrease energy for future Jena-Optronik sensor merchandise within the coming years,” mentioned Peter Kapell, CEO, Jena-Optronik. “We admire CAES as a key associate in our success in assembly extra demanding future mission necessities.”
