About us...

Kombuta is a firmware development firm based in Johannesburg, South Africa which specializes in machine learning (ML) model acceleration and deployment using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Downstream, this can be used to increase the efficiency in processing large amounts of data generated by earth observation satellites and land-based sensors. Upstream, we are researching on the implementation of energy efficient ML models that can be run on small satellites. In the light that most small satellites can only transmit small amounts of data, this limitation can be overcome by enabling the satellites to process data from onboard sensors on the fly and only transmit events/data of interest.
