“Open Source Development Models in Satellite Communications” report released

OpenSatCom is a European Space Agency activity aiming at assessing the relevance of open-source methodologies in satellite communications. Libre Space Foundation has joined forces with inno3 and together, through OpenSatCom, they are working hard on providing insight to the European Space Agency and to the space industry in general.

A central output of our work on OpenSatCom is the release of the “Open Source Development Models in Satellite Communications”. The report provides an overview of open-source development and business models in general, how these models are adopted/implemented/integrated in specific industries, and focuses on the applicability and existing usage of open-source models in the satellite communications domain.
