Fail-SAFE reconfigurable platform for SATellite missions

Short Description

SAFESAT will provide a reconfigurable, safely partitioned ground based testbed for experiments in a small, plug & play satellite.

The project addresses the size, weight and power requirements posed by nanosatellites in a computing architecture with a small number of highly integrated hardware components. Virtualization and partitioning on the chip and the network level allow for safe and reliable operation and freedom-of-interference on the high-performance platform.

TTTech will contribute with the TTEthernet network and integration of the partitioned operating system and software platform from its subcontractors, whereas the partner TU Graz will implement the electronics platform and focus on demonstration of the testbed platform.
