Simplex in a Hostile Communications Environment: The Coordinated Prototype

  • Abstract

    Simplex is an engineering framework embodying fault tolerance and dynamic upgrade in a highly maintainable system. This report describes an approach to using Simplex to construct a COTS-based computer system capable of coordinated real-time motion control in a hostile communications environment. It also discusses how selected portions of the Coordinated Prototype tolerate software faults and allow new software to be deployed and tested during system operation.
