The goal of the GEN6000 technology is to provide 10x to 100x improvements in on-board computing power while lowering relative power consumption and cost. 

The GEN6000 design strategy incorporates commercial 
radiation-tolerant FPGA technology and couples it with an integrated upset detection and correction architecture to provide reliable “order of magnitude” improvements in computing power over traditional radiation-hardened flight systems.
