Abstract:

This document is the software requirements specification SRS for a Reusable Ada-based Real-time Operating System RROSS sponsored by Phillips Laboratory at Kirtland Air Force Base and the Ada Joint Program Office. This specification is part of a study by USAF Phillips Laboratory to create an open standard for a spacecraft operating system and write standard interfaces to the Ada run-time system. The goal of this study is to determine what OS features, capabilities and standard interfaces to payload and bus software are required or desired by spacecraft software developers and to create a specification based on these needs. This SRS specifies an operating system for a processor embedded within a spacecraft. Computer or program failures can mean loss of mission goals for even overall mission failure.
