Abstract

Our senior design project related to software development for the Formation Flying Test Bed (FFTB) at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). Our project consisted of enhancing existing software tools that provide real-time data plotting and data communication for the FFTB. The existing software tools consisted of a simulation plotting package and the software created by the 2003 WPI project team. We improved the data communications of the FFTB by implementing a middleware communications system to replace point-to-point connections. We also developed a real-time plotting application that utilized the middleware.
