The scientific instruments included in modern space missions require high compression ratios in order to downlink all the acquired data to the ground. In many cases, this must be achieved without losses and the available processing power is modest. Algorithms requiring large amounts of data for their optimum operation cannot be used due to the limited(More)
The Large Observatory For x-ray Timing (LOFT) was studied within ESA M3 Cosmic Vision framework and participated in the final downselection for a launch slot in 2022-2024. Thanks to the unprecedented combination of effective area and spectral resolution of its main instrument, LOFT will study the behaviour of matter under extreme conditions, such as the(More)
