Space development, aviation system control software

A space development project of Japan

There are four big flows in a space development project of Japan. --- The first is the planetary exploration and astronomical observation plan. The second is the Earth Observing plan. The third is the space shuttle plan. And the fourth is the Space Station Program.

The planetary exploration and the astronomical observation plan started with the YOUKOU in 1991, and have resulted in the Lunar-A through the ASUKA and the Planet B. The Lunar-A is a project for clarifying the internal structure of the moon. We joined the software development of Lunar-A.
In the space shuttle plan, we contributed to the injection control of H2 machine launch, system control of a round trip machine plan, and software development.
Moreover, in the Space Station Program, freedom Japan module (JEM) development, development of a very small gravity experiment system, and the portion for the Lords of software are developed.
Although it is small-scale, Japan has been performing steady space development.

International Space Station plan

A very small gravity experiment system (Experiment system of JEM-SPCF) of the freedom Japan module (JEM) development is divided into two, 1/4 DR system and 1/8 DR system.
To enable the use over a long period of time in the weightless environment, various ideas and new structures were considered for logics of electronic control software we had developed. It is the very advanced system, since a design, manufacture, and the test were performed by the standard of NASA.

The International Space Station is an equipment which size is as a football field. In order to use the space environment and to do experiment research for a long period of time, the United States, Canada, European countries, and Russia are making the plan together.
