A Plug-and-play Approach Based on the I2C Standard
Plug-and-play architectures can reduce the timeline for constructing complex systems by automating the connections between components. While plug-and-play technologies have been successfully appliedExpand
SpaceWire Plug -and -Play (PnP)
[Abstract] The ability to rapidly deploy inexpensive satellites to meet tactical goals has become an important goal for military space systems. In fact, Operat ionally Responsive Space (ORS) has beenExpand
Development of a family of picosatellite deployers based on the CubeSat standard
The standard deployer for the CubeSat, capable of releasing a number of CubeSats as secondary payloads on a wide range of launch vehicles, is described along with potential variations that accommodate different mission needs. Expand

Architectural framework and toolflow concepts for rapidly composable wireless spacecraft
A pushbutton toolflow (PBTF) motivated by concepts electronic design automation, only they are now extended to encompass satellite (or other system) designs, in that it is possible to rapidly develop an virtually infinite variety of system designs given a sufficiently large collection of building block hardware and software applications.

MECs: "Building Blocks" for Creating Biological and Chemical Instruments
This work proposes that a family of standardized multidisciplinary components is needed, a set of “building blocks” that perform a wide array of different tasks and are designed to integrate together, and presents the foundation of this set of components, called Multifluidic Evolutionary Components (MECs).

SPARC-1: A joint US/Sweden multi-mission modular nanosatellite platform
The NAPA program and the supporting technologies under development are reviewed, emphasizing the first experimental satellite that embodies a number of these key concepts, as well as examining the “kinetics” of rapid mission formation. Expand
Developing a CubeSat Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) Reference Model - interim status
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a key practice to advance systems engineering that can benefit CubeSat missions. MBSE creates a system model that helps integrate other discipline specificExpand
