Abstract:

The Fault-Tolerant Spacecraft Computer FTSC is intended to furnish highly reliable computational capability for long-duration space missions typically five years. Reliability testing or demonstration of such a computer by classical methods are completely impractical because they would require a large equipment population and long test time. Therefore, a test approach is recommended in which each of the individual requirements for establishing reliability can be carried out under projected brassboard and prototype efforts without exceeding reasonable resource and schedule constraints. The test phases so identified are as follows Module reliability test Error-detection or coverage test Recovery test System level test.
