onventional spacecraft wiring harnesses are built with architectures that are fixed at manufacture, though evolving mission requirements often tend to favor systems that can adapt to support the concept of Responsive Space missions. With launch costs exceeding $30,000 per kg, reducing the mass of a spacecrafts wiring harness without compromising reliability is highly desirable [1]. A programmable wiring harness is being built which exhibits qualities similar to a field programmable gate array… CONTINUE READING
