Currently, using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components and constructing parallel system becomes the main way to improve satellite system performance remarkably. System reliability relying on its structure rather than devices makes system fault-tolerant architecture and strategy increasingly important. As centralized fault-tolerant solution has the inherent drawback of single point of failure (SPOF), it can not guarantee system reliability well. Distributed fault tolerant method, due to its complexity and large overhead, has not been maturely used. In this paper, we propose a new distributed fault-tolerant scheme with high reliability and flexibility, in which an equal symmetric distributed fault tolerant (ESDFt) architecture is constructed. Based on the structure, functional module framework of system nodes and autonomous fault-tolerant strategy are designed. The ESDFt scheme creates favorable conditions for flexible implementation of system fault tolerance. It utilizes the master election mechanism, which eliminates the risks of SPOF and chooses master node intelligently based on user's configuration, making fault-tolerant complexity and processing overhead flexibly adjustable. The verification and evaluation of ESDFt scheme has been performed on a prototype system. The experiment results prove that ESDFt scheme not only ensures system reliability well, but also enhances system flexibility and practicality at the same time.
