We describe a design of fault-tolerant features for the PANSAT communications satellite, a design which can address a wide variety of possible faults. We discuss system errors, program errors, and data errors, each subdivided into a variety of types. We discuss "acceptance tests" that can be used to detect faults, and the appropriate remediation methods for each type.
