    The information content of scientific data coming from remote planets explorations is very high and is still not fully exploited by the scientific and public communities. A large distribution of such data to scientists not directly involved in a space mission project is a relevant objective worthy of interest. This evolution requires an increase in returned data volumes and higher data rates, envi... View full abstract»

    The traditional retransmission mechanisms are inefficient In solving the problem of data loss In deep-space mission scenarios due to the large round trip delays. Herein, we Introduce packets Interleaving CCSDS me delivery protocol (PI-CFDP) developed to cope with frequent packet losses Inherent In deep-space communications. It is designed by applying fountain codes to CFDP for Interleaving packets... View full abstract»

    Herein, we propose a comparison of two communication paradigms: interplanetary and pervasive; through the analysis of problems, solutions and future challenges. The aim is to show that interplanetary communication is performed through particular networks, which, on one hand, use most of the pervasive communication paradigm but, on the other hand, own features that allow the extension of the pervas...

    First, 8 Gbps Is needed, at a minimum, to develop Earth-Mars communication in the era of a Mars human community and to create a mirror database of Earth's Internet search engine on Mars. Second, a 10 Gbps Earth-Mars link Is shown to be feasible, assuming 1.2 m diameter optical antennas, a receiver of 0.3 photons/bit sensitivity in the 1.55 μm wavelength band, Pulse Position Modulation/Frequ...

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2965 KB)  

    Maintaining connectivity in deep-space communications is of critical importance to key missions and the ability to adapt node behavior “on-the-fly” can have dynamic benefits. Autonomic operation minimizes failure risk by performing local configurations using collected context data and on-board policies, improving response time to events, and reducing remote mission management expense...

  • Complexity, emergence and the challenges of assurance

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 34 - 41
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1028 KB)  

    The complexity of modern products, systems, and processes makes the task to identify, characterise, and provide sufficient assurance about the desirable properties a major challenge. Stakeholders also demand a degree of enhanced confidence about the absence of undesirable properties with a potential to cause harm or loss. This develops a framework of seven fundamental facets of performance as an o... View full abstract»

    New approaches are being studied for real-time interaction, and related supporting processes, with spacecraft and instruments in deep-space. Spacecraft are evolving, improving in many ways, and generally, becoming more robust. Operations are changing also. Operations will be more automated in the future. However, there is a challenge. Deep-space missions are not all alike. The Operations phases of... View full abstract»
