MaMMoTH-Up represents a permanent adaptable experiment opportunity located on the ARIANE5 (A5) Vehicle Equipment Bay.
Protected by a dedicated container design it shall make extensive use of COTS hardware and advanced software to achieve its ambitious data collection, processing and compression tasks. This COTS approach is secured by tailored dependability technics to ensure a reliable operation in the demanding space environment.
To downlink the gathered, processed and compressed data MaMMoTH will make use of the A5 telemetry subsystem acting as a peripheral data acquisition unit once a standard A5 mission is completed. A future application also on ARIANE6 is envisaged.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 637616.
