Mercury Supplies SSDR for NASA's JPL EMIT Science Mission

June 1, 2021 Erin Spring

The NASA JPL EMIT mission maps the surface mineralogy of arid dust source regions and aids in improving forecasts of the role of mineral dust in the warming and cooling of Earth's atmosphere.  JPL required a reliable, radiation-tolerant storage device with high-speed data processing and large storage capacity.  Mercury delivered the high-performance RH3440 solid-state data recorder with proven reliability in high-radiation environments to enable on-orbit data processing and storage.
