Spacecraft protected hard real time operating system
A protected hard real time operating system for spacecraft could reduce spacecraft weight and cost by allowing all processes to be run on a single processor. With launch costs of around $20,000/kg and a limited ability to generate power, spacecraft have greater need than any car or aircraft for the weight and power savings that can be offered by a single processor protected hard real time operating system. The research will include determining if an sel4 based operating system of sufficient complexity to meet the requirements for a spacecraft operating system can be verified. The strategy of ACSER is to design small, light weight and low cost spacecraft using high technology to endow these spacecraft with the capability of larger spacecraft. A protected hard real time operating system for spacecraft is consistent with this strategy due to the power and weight savings it can offer.
