Datalight in Space Again with SpaceX Falcon 9 Project

Posted by: Thom Denholm

Earlier this month (June 4th) SpaceX sent the Falcon 9 rocket on its maiden voyage from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station with a successful orbital insertion. Falcon 9 is a reusable spacecraft which will be used to resupply the International Space Station under the Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program. We are delighted that SpaceX selected Datalight Reliance and FlashFX Pro to protect mission-critical data from the rigors of space travel, such as shock, vibration, temperature extremes and radiation. Emily Shanklin,Director, Marketing and Communications for SpaceX had this to say: "Datalight software enables reliable flash-based embedded computing for SpaceX's upcoming Falcon 9 and Dragon spacecraft missions in the data-hostile conditions of space."
