  abstract= "Spacecraft operate in the unique space environment and are
     exposed to various types of radiation. Radiation effects
     can damage the on-board electronic circuits, particularly
     silicon devices. There is a pressing need for a remote
     upgrading capability which will allow electronic circuits
     on-board satellites to self-repair and evolve their
     functionality. One approach to addressing this need is to
     utilize the hardware reconfigurability of Field Programmable
     Gate Arrays. FPGAs nowadays are suitable for implementation
     of complex on-board system-on-chip designs. Leading-edge
     technology enables innovative solutions, permitting lighter
     picosatellite systems to be designed. This paper presents a
     reconfigurable system-onchip architecture for pico-satellite
     on-board data processing and control. The SoC adopts a
     modular bus-centric architecture using the AMBA bus and
     consists of soft intellectual property cores. In addition
     the SoC is capable of remote partial reconfiguration at run
