"process data at the source"

I can understand the obvious importance of that, but for science it is imperative to able to consult the actual data, not just the result of the processing. So data will still have to be re-transmitted in some form or another.

It might however be feasible to use a backup SSD and bring the data back "manually", rotating a new backup with the next flight.
