Hi-FLY will provide a comprehensive demonstration incorporating the critical elements of the payload data chain from instrument to ground-station; aiming to substantially increase the payload data-rates that can be supported in future space-based data networks and Earth Observation missions. It will allow an aggregate instrument data-rate of at least 50 Gbps to be supported in the near term, together with a roadmap to achieve an even higher performance in the future.
