Abstract

The purpose of this project was to prototype a wireless spacecraft I&T system for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. The final system was controlled by a Palm IIIx handheld computer, while the RF link was established using Linx RF communication modules. This project provided an alternative approach to the current cable-based testing procedures and reduced the number of variables in determining the source of errors encountered during spacecraft I&T process.
