Garrett Chandler: Reliable Computing Platforms for Spacecraft, Phase Two

Grants and Contracts Details


Reliable Computing Platfonns for Spacecraft, Phase Two James E. Lumpp, Jr. ABSTRACT This document proposes to continue and extend collaboration between researchers at the University of Kentucky, Honeywell Defense and Space Electronic Systems, and The New Millennium Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to develop hardware and software architectures for spacecraft computers. As part of the collaboration, we are evaluating techniques that are being created at UK for application in the development of the EAFTC Honeywell Architecture as part of the New Millennium Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This proposal outlines the problem of providing general purpose computing infrastructure in spacecraft, describes a plan for collaboration between Honeywell, JPL and UK to provide solutions, and notes current progress in the research. It is intended that this collaboration will yield results that will be tested and flown in the NMP Space Technology (ST8) Mission satellite scheduled to launch in 2008 and it is hoped that the concepts can evolve to become an architectural standard for future spacecraft.
