Hyperspectral imaging instruments allow remote Earth exploration by measuring hundreds of spectral bands (at different wavelength channels) for the same area of the Earth surface. The acquired data cube comprises several GBs per flight, which have attracted attention to onboard compression techniques. Typically these compression techniques are expensive from the computational point of view. This paper presents a compressive sensing method implementation on a low power consumption Graphic Processing Unit. The experiments are conducted on a Jetson TX1 board, which is well suited to perform vector operations such as dot products. These experiments have been performed to demonstrate the applicability, in terms of accuracy and time consuming, of these methods for onboard processing. The results show that by using this low power consumption GPU it is possible to obtain real-time performance with a very limited power requirements.
