Case Study

On-Board Software for the Solar Orbiter

The Solar Orbiter mission is a joint European Space Agency (ESA) and National Aeronautics and Space (NASA) collaboration that will study the role of the engine at the very centre of the solar system - the sun.


We helped with the specification, design, development and testing of parts of the Solar Orbiter Central Software and supported AIRBUS Defence & Space, following an engineering allocation process that ensured close collaboration across the multi-site development teams.
