Flight proven across multiple mission applications for a range of customer requirements, this readily available solution has a reputation for reliability and performance for advanced small and nano-satellite missions. The Sirius TCM LEON3FT has inherited advanced error detection and correction in it’s design. The real-time operating system runs on a LEON3FT fault-tolerant soft processor, compliant to IEEE 1754 SPARC v8, and fault tolerance is secured by using triple-modular redundancy on FPGA and memory scrubbing.
Sirius spacecraft avionics are modular in design. Modules can be combined to offer redundant configurations or to simply accommodate mission specific requirements. The Sirius TCM LEON3FT 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.
