The space industry is a niche market with dedicated hardware components. Yet, the emergence of massive constellation push the space domain to use COTS hardware components. This new mindset is now growing specifically in the on board software development by using COTS operating system and framework. But this new paradigm raises an issue about safety and qualifications. How using Linux in such an environment?
The Linux foundation project named ELISA wants to answer this issue and we aim at contributing to this objective. While ELISA is focused on process and guidelines to enable the use of Linux in safety applications, we provide an implementation of Linux monitoring by using HMP targets such as Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale plus. During this presentation, we will describe how Linux will be monitored by another CPU to verify safety properties and explain how we expect to put Linux into orbit in the near future.
