Paper Abstract

The need for reliable processing is essential in communication satellite systems. Because of the fault tolerance, testability and radiation requirements of the RH32 program, these processors meet the need for reliable processing in a space environment. These processors were designed to be used as embedded processors and are ideal for commercial satellite systems, where the need for reliable processing is essential. Other applications for these processors include commercial avionics and nuclear waste management systems. This paper discusses the RH32 program, both Honeywell's and TRW's approaches, and several public safety applications which the RH32 can support.
