A few months ago I posted about the first use of Generative AI in space to denoise grainy images onboard the OPS-SAT-1 spacecraft and how I applied it to uplink The Pale Blue Dot back into space for some poetic denoising.

Since then, I worked with the Mission Control Team to run the experiment a few more times and ended up with prettier results:

Original.
Noised.
Denoised.

I also presented our findings at IEEE AeroConf 2024 as part of a peer-reviewed paper that will soon be published. Here’s a glimpse of the action:

Check out the project’s GitHub repo and read the pre-print on ResearchGate.

A huge thanks to the OPS-SAT-1 Mission Control Team as well as to my co-experimenters / co-authors Cesar Guzman and Sam Bammens!
