The mission of the DLR Simulation and Software Technology is to support spacecraft engineering with new technology and innovative software.
In the project “Scalable On-Board Computing for Space Avionics” (ScOSA), we are developing a distributed, reliable and reconfigurable on-board computer for future space missions. In this system, different software tasks run on different processor nodes and exchange messages. In case of a failure, the system should be able to detect it and reconfigure itself.
In order to increase our confidence in the system, we would like to analyze it using formal techniques such as model checking. We are interested in questions like: Can the system detect a fault within the given time? Will the critical message be delivered within the given time bounds? Is it possible that multiple reconfigurations are triggered simultaneously?
The goal of this work is to evaluate the capabilities of existing model checking tools and approaches, identify properties of interest that can be checked for ScOSA, and get some insight into the system sizes for which model checking is practical.
As part of this project you will work on following tasks:
