Space industries designers, for scientific, observation, exploration and telecom missions are now facing requirements such as long lifetime, autonomy and safe operation guarantee in case of failure. New technical and industrial challenges will add complexity. The key point to ensure the success of future industrial projects is to answer on board processing increasing demand by designing more scalable and modular architectures in order to allow new missions whilst improving lifecycle, costs of design, qualification, and security. Focusing on data processing, new technology such as time and space partitioning as part of Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) experimented by aeronautical domain and industrialized in the new generation of aircraft, was analyzed first for security and feasibility in space domain by an ESA project on secure partitioning and working group. In order to complete these studies, Integrated Modular Avionics for Space, as current ESA project, has the objective to confirm the feasibility of Time and Space Partitioning in space domain using existing hardware and based on ARINC653. By combining the efforts of industrial partners, the IMA for Space (IMA SP) project main goals are to focus first on some major topics such as computational model, impact of caches, impact on process and tools, Failure Detection and Isolation Recovery (FDIR), maintenance and I/O management in order to consolidate requirements, then to develop software solutions that meet requirements and lastly to implement these solutions in a demonstration phase with operational software.

This paper presents the current proposal for the COrDeT-2 On-board Software (OBSW) Reference Architecture (OBSW-RA), and outlines the design principles and process which contribute to its design. In particular, the paper addresses the Component Layer of the OBSW-RA, which is a concrete instantiation of the COrDeT-2 Component Model and the tool-set that supports it.

The Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) is developing a set of Mission Operations (MO) services that will allow the build-up of space systems (Ground Segment, but also part of the Space Segment) using plug-in components that implement those services and that can grow as the approach lends to easy extensibility. MO will become the PUS of the future! © 2010 by ESA.

The Coal Authority has commissioned SciSys to undertake a business transformation and technology replacement program and deliver a new enterprise information service known as Inferis. Inferis is based on state-of-the-art Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Geographic Information System (GIS) and workflow technologies and is designed to provide The Coal Authority with a single, unified view of its enterprise. It replaces previous solutions and facilitates smarter working via business process automation, service re-use and corporate data sharing. Inferis has two main access points: Inferis Public (internet) and Inferis Central (intranet). The former sub-system allows The Coal Authority stakeholders such as local authorities; solicitors or members of the public to manage their accounts and order a range of products. The Inferis Central sub-system, on the other hand, is where the majority of the system functionality is delivered to support a wider variety of internal The Coal Authority business processes and workflows.

In order to maximize the use of a robotic probe during its limited lifetime, scientists immediately have to be provided the best achievable visual quality of 3D data products. The EU FP7-SPACE Project PRoVisG (2008-2012) develops technology for the rapid processing and effective representation of visual data by improving ground processing facilities. In September 2011 PRoVisG held a Field Trials campaign in the Caldera of Tenerife to verify the implemented 3D Vision processing mechanisms and to collect various sets of reference data in representative environment. The campaign was strongly supported by the Astrium UK Rover Bridget as a representative platform which allows simultaneous onboard mounting and powering of various vision sensors such as the Aberystwyth ExoMars PanCam Emulator (AUPE). The paper covers the preparation work for such a campaign and highlights the experiments that include standard operations- and science- related components but also data capture to verify specific processing functions. We give an overview of the captured data and the compiled and envisaged processing results, as well as a summary of the test sites, logistics and test assets utilized during the campaign. © 2012 SPIE-IS&T.
