Abstract:

The increasing emphasis on using smaller satellites for space experiments, technology demonstration, and operational systems by DoD, NASA, and private industry has given rise to increasing standardization of small-sat components and systems, resulting in reduced costs and acquisition time. However, because of inevitable trades between resources and capability, there remains a strong need for standardized architecture for implementing experiments requiring high computational and data acquisition throughput. Further, because there is frequently a need to integrate several experiments on a single satellite, modularization allows individual teams to develop its functions with less impact and reduced risk than for a highly-integrated experiment. In Phase I, we defined a modularized architecture for a payload computer and data acquisition/control system. In Phase II, we will develop enabling technologies, together with systems engineering capabilities, that will make possible the demonstration of satellites having transformational capabilities in a small-sat package and at a small-sat price. Our initial products are a precision optical metrology sensor for space and a networked data acquisition system. To assess the feasibility of the architecture, we will optimize the design for AFRL's Deployable Structures Experiment space flight experiment.
