Friday 17 September a round-table was held about Plug-and-Play (PnP). Terrestrial Plug-and-Play networks facilitate automatic ‘join-and-discovery’ processes that allow rapid integration to take place. The Space Plug-and-Play Avionics approach is the same principle applied in aerospace.
The purpose of the round-table was to provide a forum to explore, identify and discuss possible opportunities for Dutch Companies in PnP for application in space. The conclusions of the discussion will be used as a basis for the position of NSO towards this domain.
Jim Lyke from AFRL showed in a movie a PnPsat that was assembled within 4 hours. The program and presentations can be found below.
