Mr Charles Patrick COLLIER (AFRL Space Vehicles)
Charles Patrick Collier, AFRL Space Vehicles Directorate, will present a tutorial on two specifications developed, and one in development under the Next Generation Space Interconnect Standard (NGSIS) effort. The Next Generation Space Interconnect Standard (NGSIS) effort is a Government-Industry collaboration effort to define a set of standards for interconnects between space system components and sub-systems. The two approved and fully ratified specifications are: SpaceVPX (VITA 78) and The RapidIO Space Device Class. The one in development is SpaceVPXLite (VITA 78.1) - this one is specifically focused on SWaP constrained 3U systems.
