The overall goal for OBC-SA III is to develop a sustainable and qualifyable avionics system architecture for space-ships. Furthermore, the architecture shall meet future computational, data-throughput, and reliability requirements while being modular and configurable. The technology demonstrator, developed in Phase 2 (OBC-SSA-III), shall be developed to an qualifyable engineering model
(IMQ) that will be tested at the relevant system environments. The technology readiness level shall be pushed to level 6, compared to level 4 in phase 2.
Tools for supporting development processes shall be developed simultaneously.
Such tools will support the users to map mission specific applications to run- time systems which are optimized for performance, power consumption, throughput, and reliability.
