Author Affiliations +
The high-performance computing is necessary for remote sensing image compression to achieve real time output. There are one Panchromatic (PAN) band and four Multi-Spectrum (MS) bands with total 970Mbps data rate in the FORMOSAT-5 Remote Sensing Instrument (RSI). Three Xilinx Virtex 5 FPGAs with external memory are used to perform real time image data compression based on CCSDS 122.0-B-1. Parallel and concurrent handling strategies are used to achieve high-performance computing in the process.
