Abstract:
Overview of On-Board Data Handling (OBDH) Subsystems for European Spacecraft and Exploration Missions.  The main characteristics of On-Board Data Handling Subsystems in terms of functions and interfaces will be described.  The environmental aspects affecting the design of the OBDH will be discussed. Trends in the design of OBDH to cope with the new Space missions’ challenges will be presented.
