This software demonstrates a working implementation of the NASA STRS (Space Telecommunications Radio System) architecture specification. This is a developing specification of software architecture and required interfaces to provide commonality among future NASA and commercial software-defined radios for space, and allow for easier mixing of software and hardware from different vendors.
It provides required functions, and supports interaction with STRS-compliant simple test plug-ins (“waveforms”). All of it is programmed in “plain C,” except where necessary to interact with C++ plug-ins. It offers a small footprint, suitable for use in JPL radio hardware.
Future NASA work is expected to develop into fully capable softwaredefined radios for use on the space station, other space vehicles, and interplanetary probes.
This work was done by Kenneth J. Peters, James P. Lux, Minh Lang, and Courtney B. Duncan of Caltech for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
