Servers to run your code revolving around Mars in space. That’s a quick summary of what this satellite’s all about. Let’s get into more detail.
Artificial Intelligence requires data to learn from. And this satellite’s going to give you all the data you need. Inputs from gamma rays, infrared rays, x-rays, radio waves and visible light from Mars are used to give you the best data you’d need for your next big project. You could run your AI or any other kind of code in Mars’ orbit. The code’ll run onboard the satellite, as that saves a lot of time and bandwidth.
The satellite is one of the most secure in the world. Results from your experiments are transmitted back to Earth in an encrypted form. There is a lock securing the data. Only you, the person with the file that contains the key to the lock can open it. Don’t worry, even if someone hacks into your computer and tries to steal the key, it wouldn’t work. That’s because the file with the key will work only on your computer, and a hacker will not be able to use it. This is called end-to-end encryption. No one, including OSWS will not be able to access the information you’re sending and receiving.
In case of a hack, the satellite’s memory will be cleared, and so will your code. So make sure you have a backup of the experiments you run in outer space on your computer. The recovery mechanism will delete the memory of the satellite completely. It will also lock it to all users, so none will be able to access it. The recovery mechanism will also be triggered if we feel it is running malicious code. The satellite is manned 23.56/7, 365.25 days a year.
The satellite has a receiving antenna dish and a transmitter. The receiver receives data from Earth and the transmitter transmits data back to Earth. The satellite can receive and send data at a maximum of 92 pbps (petabits per second). It is blazing fast to make up for the fact that it takes 20 minutes for data to transmit from either end to each other. The download time of your code on the satellite is going to be 92 pbps times the size of the code you’re uploading to the satellite.
There are 5 sensors on the satellite. The gamma ray detector detects gamma rays, the x-ray detector detects the x-rays, the radio wave detector detects radio waves, the infrared ray detector detects infrared rays, and the telescopic camera is a telescope-grade camera used to capture visible light.
The satellite can be locked on to Mars or anything else. The satellite adjusts its position so that it can view what you select in the best possible way. Thrusters and reaction gears help in this process. There are 3 batteries on board. All three are charged until full by the solar panels. The first one is used to power the satellite. The other two are for backup, in case the satellite cannot access sunlight when, for example, the satellite is revolving around the other side of Mars.
