Software is an essential element of spacecraft subsystems.
We advise on flight software development and licensing agreements; and software agreements governing the system – whether it be Boot, Command, Data Handling, GNC, and Power and Communications.
Issues such as system integration, data processing, risk assessment security, software simulation, testbeds and verification need to be considered contractually.
Understanding the underlying intellectual property in such software solutions is essential to ensure the development work is capable of IP protection and in order to identify with precision where those rights exist.
Performance guarantees, software escrow and liability issues also form part of the suite of issues which arise.
