Autonomous trustworthy monitoring and diagnosis of CubeSat health

Funding: European Space Agency
Start Date: May 1, 2021
End Date: Oct. 31, 2022

Description

The objective of this project is to harness state-of-the-art explainable AI and operating system technology to build in an additional layer of dependability, accountability and intelligence between the critical core of a CubeSat and the environment it controls. The initial evaluation found current operating systems deployed on CubeSats, e.g., FreeRTOS, are not fit for a future in which Launching States increasingly transfer liability for collisions resulting from failures or even cyber-attacks to CubeSat Operators. In this project, we propose a novel solution that is verified, hence dependable, and which builds auditable real-time anomaly detection and overall health monitoring into the critical core of a CubeSat.
