• Given that a full blown linux is rarely used in spacecrafts, can popular image processing libraries like opencv be use in space applications?

  • Since radiation hardened processors are much less capable than recent processors, can real time image processing performance achieved using processors with 'space heritage'.

  • Do space software developers go for custom C++ libraries for image processing? or is there a commonly used open source c++ library?

  • $\begingroup$ i dont think any spacecraft have live image processing, because what would they do with it? they are all remote or pre planned controlled $\endgroup$ – Topcode Apr 6 '20 at 2:48

  • $\begingroup$ I found NASA's computer vision library at github.com/visionworkbench/visionworkbench . But I am not sure which of their projects used them. There was some information about the library here $\endgroup$ – Vinmean Apr 12 '20 at 5:38
