Pushing the Boundaries of Spacecraft Autonomy and Resilience with a Custom Software Framework and Onboard Digital Twin
MetadataShow full item record
This research addresses the high CubeSat mission failure rates caused by inadequate software and overreliance on ground control. By applying a reliable design methodology to flight software development and developing an onboard digital twin platform with fault prediction capabilities, this study provides a solution to increase satellite resilience and autonomy, thus reducing the risk of mission failure. These findings have implications for spacecraft of all sizes, paving the way for more resilient space missions.
