Boeing, NASA Developing Orion Space Launch Software

Site: NASA.gov

Boeing delivered three flight computer software test beds for flight software development, the company announced Thursday. 

The test beds were delivered ahead of schedule on April 25 to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville.

Triple redundant processors make the delivered computers usable in harsh radiation environments, said Dane Richardson, manager for the Boeing space launch system avionics and software team.

As a result of the early delivery, NASA engineers have begun to integrate the software into the SLS that will eventually be used for deep space missions, the agency said. 

The SLS will be used to launch NASA’s Orion spacecraft, which is scheduled to take place in 2017.

Todd May, SLS program manager at Marshall, said that SLS development will accelerate and have more time as a result of Boeing’s early delivery.
