Satellite System Description

Other • The beginnings of JAS grew out of the satellite area because there was a need to more effectively approach building satellite payloads to reduce NRE and REC, reduce size, weight and power (SWaP), and respond quickly to national needs for mission applications. JAS Toolbox 1.0 is focused on satellite because...

System Monitor and Communication Profile

Other • The System Monitoring and Communication (SMAC) Profile defines a subsystem intended for integration into JAS nodes to provide control, communication, and state-of-health (SOH) monitoring capabilities. The SMAC subsystem consists of a single, common design applied to all nodes which provides a consistent interface to the system controller regardless of the...

Time Distribution

Other • The JAS architecture does not specify a time distribution scheme nor limit system implementations from incorporating their own methods. Two possible time distribution schemes are presented as examples: Fully Connected A fully connected distribution provides a direct interface between each node and the host. Fully connected time distribution is more...

Useful Metrics for Analyzing Topology Candidates

Other • Emerging high-bandwidth, low-latency network technology has made network-based architectures both feasible and potentially desirable for use in satellite payload architectures. Network architectures are capable of routing large amounts of traffic with reasonable latency, allowing considerable amounts of data between nodes to be shared. However, care must be exercised when developing...
