Two scholarships available in SpaceLab in the hardware/software test field.
The main objetive of these scholarships is to make research and development of more agile and robust testing in embeeded systems applied to space missions. Since in the aeroespace enviroment failures on this systems can compromise the whole project, methods using the system engineering are fundamental. For smaller projects such as CubeSats these methodology can be simplified for shorter project development and testing lifecycle.
Two hardware FlatSat platforms have already been developed by SpaceLab and automated testing using GitHub actions are underway on the FloripaSat-2 mission.
