Mrs Laura Seoane Purrinos (INTA)


After previous experiences using CAN in space applications (as interface of some instruments and as main bus in small satellites), INTA (Spanish National Institute for Aerospace Technology) is currently involved in the development of RLS, a Raman Laser Spectrometer to be boarded in ExoMars 2020. RLS is the first implementation at INTA using a standardized high layer (CANOpen based on CCIPC) on top of the CAN data link layer. The experience of this approach will be presented.
