STAR-Dundee is a leading supplier of spacecraft on-board data-handling technology with significant SpaceWire and SpaceFibre experience and expertise, celebrating 20 years in business in 2022. We supply a comprehensive range of SpaceWire and SpaceFibre IP cores and test and development equipment to the international aerospace industry.
Our highly experienced engineers were instrumental in the development of SpaceWire, writing the standard with input from international engineers. Our SpaceWire IP is now widely used and integrated in spaceflight systems monitoring the Earth, exploring our Solar System, studying the universe and supporting commercial space applications.
Our engineers led the research, development and standardisation of SpaceFibre, the next generation of SpaceWire. SpaceFibre offers higher data rates, quality of service, FDIR, deterministic delivery, low latency time-synchronisation and event signalling, while being backwards compatible with SpaceWire at the packet level. Our SpaceFibre IP cores have flown on in-orbit demonstration missions and are being implemented in spaceflight systems.
