This thesis proposes a processor design for the Petite Amateur Navy Satellite (PANSAT). The missions of PANSAT are considered. It compares the design of three previous satellites with similar missions and determines the processor functions required to support PANSAT missions. Particular attention is given to the store and forward message system. A reliable processor design that implements these functions is developed. The reliability of the proposed design is examined. Minimum software requirements for the resulting design are listed.
