Abstract
Reliance on aging monolithic overhead physical systems with assurance of resilience is an ongoing critical discussion. The White House has issued a strategy to evolve this system of systems technology to meet growing information and knowledge needs. Fractionated Space Cyber Physical Systems is part of a novel concept emerging from a field of hyperconnected networks designed to withstand risk and address aforementioned needs. The transition from a monolithic design into alternative resilient designs will better reflect the utility of a system to the commander. Resilience is a characteristic meant to assure performance even within a higher probability of risk. Resilience encourages availability regardless of the perceived threat in the increasingly dynamic environment. Traditional systems incorporate the sub-systems required to deliver the common operational picture. Reduction of those integrated sub-systems is unacceptable; therefore, introducing a decentralized architecture is going to carry with it the requirement of a seamless interaction despite being separated. Decentralization is a design process that allows a constellation capability to seek more nodes than what would be normally available when residing in the same payload. This is a measure of design success that enhances the evaluation of a system’s capability and its ability to survive risk, its resilience.
