SmallSat Onboard Computer
Flight proven across multiple mission applications for a range of customer requirements, this readily available SmallSat Sirius-OBC-LEON3FT solution has a reputation for reliability and performance for advanced satellite missions.
Dependable data handling designed for advanced satellite constellations in LEO and deep space exploration missions the readily available SmallSat Sirius-OBC-LEON3FT delivers ‘always on’ reliable operations that work every time on time with precision performance.
Our on-board computer is designed to emphasis high performance, resilience and reliability. Designed for the most demanding missions the Sirius OBC provides modular, satellite compatible, mechanical design. With pulse commands for low level, basic commanding. Sirius TCM spacecraft avionics are modular in design, modules can be combined to offer redundant configurations or to simply accommodate mission specific requirements. Our inbuilt protections are based on over a decade of design heritage guarantee real-time-on-time operations.
With enhanced error detection and correction, the Sirius OBC is tolerant to Single-EventEffects (SEE) in logic and data storage. Fault tolerance is secured through TMR (Triple-Modular Redundancy) on all FPGA flip-flops and through boot flash and EDAC (error detection and correction) on memories.
The Sirius Command and Data Handling system has a standard single string system that consists of an on-board computer (Sirius OBC) and a combined mass memory with CCSDS stack (Sirius TCM). The OBC runs mission specific software and manage the spacecraft system. The TCM receives and stores payload data and platform housekeeping data while at the same time distributing telecommands and serving mass memory data to the transceiver.
We offer various software design kits for this product, including BAL (Bright Ascension Ltd).
With 50 MHz LEON3FT fault-tolerant soft processor, its RTEMS real-time operating system (RTOS) is compliant to IEEE 1754 SPARCv8. Utilizing SpaceWire on-board the main data bus, the on-board computer is designed to emphasis high performance, resilience and reliability.
Sirius OBC solutions have autonomous single event latch-up protection in logic and data storage. Our inbuilt protections are based on over a decade of design heritage guarantee realtime-on-time operations. Designed and qualified for five years in LEO.
