The latest and next generations of spacecraft synthetic aperture radar and high-resolution image instruments will provide very high data-rates on-board a spacecraft, in excess of 10 Gbps. SpaceFibre is the next generation of SpaceWire network technology for spacecraft on-board data-handling. It runs over electrical or fibre-optic cables, operates at very high data rates, and provides in-built quality of service (QoS) and fault detection, isolation and recovery (FDIR) capabilities. This paper describes three SpaceFibre based units: an image sensor, an FPGA based processor and a many-core DSP processor. Equipped with SpaceFibre interfaces they demonstrate the ease with which SpaceFibre can be deployed on future space missions.
