Mr Francisco J. Cazorla (Barcelona Supercomputing Center)
Actitvity: Laboratory (R&D) TO: Marco Zulianello/Software Systems Division Multicore processors have been considered as an effective solution to cope with the increasingly performance requirements of Critical Real-Time Embedded (CRTE) systems, like those used in space, aerospace, automotive and railway domains. Multicores enable consolidating several functions on the same chip reducing...
Mr Marco Lattuada (Politecnico di Milano)
Acitvity: NEP TO: Marco Zulianello/Software Systems Division Since the core processors on space systems start to show their limits in terms of processing power and system budget (cost, power consumption, mass), the adoption of heterogeneous processors platforms (i.e., platforms with different types of processing elements such as general purpose processors and digital signal processors)...
Mr David Sanchez de la Llana (ESA/Softwares Systems Division)
Activity: TRP TO: David Sanchez de la Llana/Software Systems Division The SCOC3 ASIC is a powerful chip developed by Astrium with ESA co-funding. It has a LEON 3 plus 2 x 1553, 2 x CAN, 7 x SPW, 1 x TMTC... It is flight qualified. The ESA TRP Contract 4000104797 has developed a set of 'flight SW drivers' for the SCOC3. The BSW has passed CDR. Further testing will be completed at ESTEC...
Mr Wijnands Quirien (ESA/Software Systems Division)
Activity: Laboratory (R&D) TO: Quirien Wijnands Software Systems’ Testing and Verification is one of the major phases in a software development life-cycle. The Testing and Verification is a process that must be closely aligned with the Design and Development of that same software system and should start right from the very beginning of the project. In doing so, the definition of...
Mr Victor Bos (Space Systems Finland)
Activity: Laboratory TO: Felice Torelli/Software Systems Division EagleEye is the reference mission implemented within the Avionics Test Bench (ATB) infrastructure to simulate an Earth Observation satellite. This is composed by a set of AOCS sensor/actuators, thermal/power subsystems and a simple optical payload (GoldenEye). The main functions of the satellite are managed by the EagleEye...
Mr Holm Matthias (Terma GmbH)
Activity: Laboratory TO: Felice Torelli/Software Systems Division In the recent years, space industries in Europe and the Agency have worked together to raise the level of standardisation of the interfaces and building blocks of the spacecraft avionics. The most prominent initiatives in this context are the SAVOIR advisory group and its focus working groups such as SAVOIR-FAIRE covering the...

Mr Alfred Fuchs (Siemens)
Acitvity: GSTP TO:Alfred Fuchs Summary: A highly reconfigurable SCOE-device is presented, which can substitute many COTS devices and leads to a high-performance, compact EGSE. Mission experiences are discussed. An EGSE, be it an Instrument-EGSE, a Power-SCOE or a Simulation Front-End, tends to consist of ca. a dozen different interface types in varying combinations. These are discrete...
Mr Brice Dellandrea (Thales Alenia Space)
Activity: TO: David Jameux/Data Systems Division MOST (Modeling of SpaceWire Traffic) is a representative and powerful SpaceWire traffic simulator designed to support conception, development and validation of SpaceWire networks. Its recent improvements have targeted simplification and performance enhancement while still being used for sizing the SpaceWire networks of multiple TAS missions....
Mr Nuno Silva (Critical Software)
Activity: TRP TO: Claudio Monteleone/Data Systems Division The scope of the work is the dependability assessment of on-board space computers (OBC) and approaches applied to achieve high reliability and availability of such systems, in order to provide a consolidated solution for the following objectives: - establish generic requirements for the procurement or development of OBCs with a...
Mr Marco Panunzio (Thales Alenia Space (France))
Activity: TO: Andreas Jung/Software Systems Division The main result of the COrDeT-2 study – which ended in December 2012 - was the definition and prototype implementation of an on-board software reference architecture (OSRA) for the development of the on-board software of future software systems. During the preliminary dissemination of the results on the OSRA and after the review of...
Mr Hougaard Paul (TERMA) , Mr Victor Bos (SSF)
Activity: TO: Andreas Jung Presentation: TERMA GmbH The objective of the projects was to consolidate the on-board software reference architecture specified by the CORDET2 project. Based on existing, operational mission, the challenge was to expose the academic on-board software reference architecture to the reality of the real world. The formal approach was A Functional Chain...
Activity: Activity: STRIN (Strategic Initiative) for Ireland This project addresses several topics where contemporary software engineering research may have useful applications in developing on-board flight software. It is made up of three parts
Mr Stuart Fowell (SCISYS)
Activity: TRP TO: Chris Taylor/Data Systems Division The primary objective of the study was to take a critical view of the proposal to move to a network architecture based on Delay/Disjoint Tolerant Networking (DTN). The DTN protocols are still emerging and are mostly targeted at terrestrial applications; their suitability for space usage is therefore unproven. A network...
