Abstract

The rise of the ‘cheaper, faster, better’ mission paradigm increasingly challenges the industrial development of satellite systems. The novel paradigm will have a profound impact on the production of the real-time software embedded on board new-generation systems. This paper discusses how software reuse may fit in the rising development scenario and how reuse interacts with other important players in the picture, especially the software process model and the on-board software architecture.
