Predictive lossy compression has been shown to represent a very flexible framework for lossless and lossy onboard compression of multispectral and hyperspectral images with quality and rate control. In this paper, we improve predictive lossy compression in several ways, using a standard issued by the Consultative Committee on Space Data Systems, namely CCSDS-123, as an example of application. First, exploiting the flexibility in the error control process, we propose a constant-signal-to-noise-ratio algorithm that bounds the maximum relative error between each pixel of the reconstructed image and the corresponding pixel of the original image. This is very useful to avoid low-energy areas of the image being affected by large errors. Second, we propose a new rate control algorithm that has very low complexity and provides performance equal to or better than existing work. Third, we investigate several entropy coding schemes that can speed up the hardware implementation of the algorithm and, at the same time, improve coding efficiency. These advances make predictive lossy compression an extremely appealing framework for onboard systems due to its simplicity, flexibility, and coding efficiency.
