We are known as the "SPA Guys". The Space Plug-and-Play Architecture (SPA) has revolutionized the way spacecraft are designed, developed and integrated.  SPA is a key enabling technology to significantly reduce the cost of integration. It provides a C&DH and PMAD backbone that allows new components to be added to a spacecraft with minimal customization. Our intimate involvement with the evolution of the SPA standard includes active participation on the standards committee and being key contributors to early implementations including work performed on PnPSat, APT and code contributions to the publicly available Satellite Data Model (SDM) baseline. 



DNET has developed a suite of SPA-based flight software applications easily customizable for new spacecraft/missions. Additionally, we have tools and expertise that allow rapid adaptation of legacy hardware components to a SPA architecture utilizing ASIMs and SPA code generating tools.

SPA is currently being studied as a solution to a wide range of UAV, stratellite, missile defense and other warfighter and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
