ZigBee – A Smart, Viable, Wireless Architecture for Spacecraft Avionics

Zigbee is gaining popularity as the foundation for smart infrastructures being widely deployed today, however at NASA Ames Research Center, it’s also being investigated for use in wireless sensor networks aboard spacecraft.

Ames Research Center is part of a multi-center effort sponsored by the NASA Engineering and Safety Center (NESC) to investigate wireless sensor networks (WSN) for spacecraft.

 Smart home, hospital, and energy technologies are based on this low-cost, low-power, wireless mesh network standard. Both wireless and smart technologies have much to offer for the space business. [Read More]
