In September 2010, HSFL began work on a 3 year NASA EPSCoR project to develop a comprehensive software environment for the design, development, and operation of small satellites. The result of this project, COSMOS (Comprehensive Open-architecture Solution for Mission Operations Systems) is now available as a set of software libraries, support files, and a basic suite of programs and graphical interface tools. COSMOS is being made available as Open Software under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).
The below block diagram shows the general overview of COSMOS functional elements:
Additional information, documentation, tutorials, and a demo of COSMOS may be found by visiting the COSMOS Project website.
