the bar for artificial intelligence.  High Performance Processor’s  compute power and

benchmark performance are outshining its competitors, while becoming the Ideal

solution for deep learning and artificial intelligence. Lockheed Martin Space is no

stranger to adapting and leveraging emerging and advance technologies to design and

develop the next generation space solutions. Here at LM Space we leverage high

performance CPUs/GPUs and deep learning algorithms, frameworks, and tools in a verity

of ways. This Presentation will give an overview on how we are researching, designing,

deploying ways of incorporating embedded CPUs/GPUs to provide a low swap solution to

integrate deep learning algorithms onto payloads, spacecraft, SUAS, SUGS and ground

stations. Finally, this presentation will also present LM Space’s SmartSat Software Framework

for implementing and deploying AI/ML algorithms for our space platforms.
