Abstract:

THIS IS A PROJECT LEADING TO DEFINITION OF A DIGITAL-PROCESSOR SYSTEM FOR SMALL SPACECRAFT. THE FIRST PHASE OF THE PROGRAM WILL EXAMINE SEVERAL SMALL-SATELLITE PROGRAMS TO DETERMINE A TYPICAL, SMALL-SATELLITE MISSION. NEXT, THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE TRANSLATED INTO SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR AN ATTITUDE-CONTROL SYSTEM THAT WILL GUIDE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DECISIONS. HARDWARE QUESTIONS AS INTERFACES, PROCESSOR CHOICES, AND MEMORY AND SPEED REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DETERMINED AND RESULT IN A PRELIMINARY BLOCK DIAGRAM, AS WELL AS WEIGHT AND POWER BUDGET. THE SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE EXAMINED AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AN OPERATING SYSTEM AND A LANGUAGE WILL BE MADE. A TOP-LEVEL SOFTWARE BLOCK DIAGRAM WILL BE PREPARED.
