Overview of the NPS Spacecraft Architecture and Technology Demonstration Satellite, NPSAT1
This paper describes the overall design of NPSAT1, a low-cost, technology demonstration satellite which hosts a number of experiments. The command and data handling (C&DH) subsystem is built on
Ad Hoc Wireless Networking and Shared Computation for Autonomous Multirobot Systems
TLDR
The paper presents three key aspects of this novel architecture to include procedures to install the real-time application interface patched operating system and wireless ad hoc communication protocol on a multiple robot system; development of a Simulink library to enable intercommunication among robots and provide the requisite software-hardware interfaces for the onboard sensor suite and actuator packages.
