SSF Develops the Software Verification Facility of the SGEO Satellite
SSF has been awarded a contract by ESA/ESTEC to develop a Software Verification Facility (SVF) for the Small-GEO satellite's On-board software. The SVF will allow automated testing of the flight SW in faster than real-time fashion, with realistic simulation of the environment and of the devices connected to the Central Data Management Unit. The ESA SGEO SVF will be used by the ESA project team for flight SW functional verification and validation, especially in the complex areas of system-level Fault Detection, Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) and Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS).
