Goddard releases open source core flight software suite to public
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Apr 01, 2015
The Innovative Technology Partnerships Office at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, announced the release of its core Flight System (cFS) Application Suite to the public. The cFS application suite is composed of 12 individual Command and Data Handling (C and DH) flight software applications that together create a reusable library of common C and DH functions. The cFS application suite allows developers to rapidly configure and deploy a significant portion of the C and DH so ... read more
