Hi Joel,

One of our colleagues was involved with the SW-PA for the GALA ( and Janus ( instruments of Juice.
Both instruments use RTEMS internally.

Fingers crossed…

The JUICE mission was scheduled to launch today but unfortunately, there was a delay on the launch of the ESA Juice mission this morning due to lightning. But on a positive note, it means that we all didn't miss it. :) It is scheduled for Friday at 8:14 a.m. ET.

"After JUICE arrives at Jupiter in July 2031, the spacecraft will spend about three and a half years orbiting the gas giant and conducting flybys of three of its moons: Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. Toward the end of the mission, Juice will focus solely on orbiting Ganymede, making it the first spacecraft to ever orbit a moon in the outer solar system."

AFAIK this mission includes at least RTEMS based instruments and Data Processing Unit (DPU). If anyone has more details on the use of RTEMS on this mission, please share.

More general info on the mission
