EDGE COMPUTING IN SPACE IS THE FUTURE
With the advent of 5G networks and the explosion of IoT devices and swarm satellites, traditional cloud computing networks will become inadequate and incapable of addressing the growing computational and latency requirements. While edge computing solutions are being adopted for terrestrial applications, there is no established edge computing platform available for space. The space industry currently relies on centralized cloud computing networks on the ground for data processing applications and could hugely benefit from adopting Edge computing solutions.
