Bringing Fault-Tolerant GigaHertz-Computing to Space: A Multi-Stage Software-Side Fault-Tolerance Approach for Miniaturized Spacecraft [article]

Christian M. Fuchs, Todor Stefanov, Nadia Murillo, Aske Plaat
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Miniaturized satellites, however, suffer from low reliability, as traditional hardware-based fault-tolerance (FT) concepts are ineffective for on-board computers (OBCs) utilizing modern systems-on-a-chip  ...  Software-based concepts have largely been ignored by the space industry as they were researched only in theory, and have not yet reached the level of maturity necessary for implementation.  ...  Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this project, other aspects of this approach and its hardware implementation will be presented in separate publications.  ...

2017 2017 IEEE 18th International Symposium on High Assurance Systems Engineering (HASE)  
The efficiency and maintainability of fault tolerance mechanisms in a computer system has typically not been a major topic of concern, mostly because fault tolerance is a non-functional system requirement  ...  The advantages and possible implementation challenges of the proposed approach are demonstrated by a real-world application.  ...  In [9] the quantitative assessment of exception handling as aspects is provided.  ...
