Onboard Computer

GAUSS Srl has a long history of designing and producing Onboard Computers for satellites. These OBC can be used as the main computer of the satellite or as computers assigned to secondary tasks to control payloads or other subsystems. These computers were designed keeping safety in mind and they have outperformed our expectations on flight.
