AbstractProgress in expert systems technology has made it possible to realize practical applications in a wide variety of space system tasks. Merit, utilizing software and expertise gained in previous SBIR initiatives, can produce a modular software component capable of reprogramming onboard expert systems executing with the contraints of the GVSC/1750A instruction set architecture. This document proposes to identify characteristics for employing and reprogramming these systems, identify the constraints for uplinking and downlinking of information, and design an approach for implementing this function with the existing Spacebased Expert System Development Environment (SEDE).
