The purpose of this project was to develop a low-level system architecture for the Goddard Space Flight Center for use in simulations of the Autonomous Nano Technology Swarm mission. The low-level system that was developed utilized a modular framework that accepted tasks from a high-level system and mapped them to action sequences that manipulated a spacecraft's underlying hardware. In addition, the low-level system incorporated mechanisms capable of detecting and correcting errors that occurred in the spacecraft's systems.
