On your really not highlighting anything - oddly, I distinctly saw the words 'Prof Sir Martin Sweeting' and 'Surrey Space Centre' highlighted in red text in your original email in my html-aware mail reader. Is that important to you?

The 2002 paper outlines the work done in the larger ESA contract; a more detailed summary of that is in

I don't see what's ironic about having to strip out complexity to fit into a constrained inexpensive hardware implementation - as 'system on a chip' implies. What is the 'dog biting hand that feeds' cartoon in your previous email intended to imply?

Gian Paolo: I wasn't really trying to highlight  anything. The paper showed up in a Google Alert and I thought that you folks might be interested. It does seem ironic that the paper makes unsubstantiated claims about complexity and expense and then goes on to say "The research presented in this paper was sponsored by ESA under Contract N 14894 “A System-on-a-Chip for Small Satellite Data Processing and Control”.
