The guardian project is split into three subprojects: Simulator, Fault Injection and Sattelite Control. Each subprojects is maintained by a different team, please see Team for more information. All parts of the system communicate which each other as shown in the graphic below.

System Architecture

  • Simulator

Our simulation is running in the simulation game Kerbal Space Program. Our subproject group will configure the simulator to our needs and define a communication protocol between the components.

  • Fault Injection

To simulate the behaviour of real hardware, the fault injection will manipulate the communication and operability of the other parts.

  • Satellite Control

The satellite control will be running on our satellite prototype. It will operate the satellite, calculate it’s momvements and perform housekeeping duties.
