This post almost blew my mind as much as the transition from Gaelic to English at the beginning of the 13th Warrior. Your understanding of the differences between English and German is so fantastic that I think the *WHOOSH* sound went above most everybody's head on the joke you set up from the very beginning. You are much appreciated good sir/madam.

+ - NASA Goddard Open Sources Core Flight Executive (cFE)->

Dishwasha writes: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has released their Core Flight Executive (cFS) application development and runtime environment.

The cFE is one of the components of the Core Flight System (CFS), a platform and project independent reusable software framework and set of reusable software applications. There are three key aspects to the CFS architecture: a dynamic run-time environment, layered software, and a component based design. The combination of these key aspects along with an implementation targeted to the embedded software domain makes it suitable for reuse on any number of NASA flight projects and/or embedded software systems.

Ever heard of SiGE and MPW/COT? Who needs FPGA when you can go open source ASIC and produce an initial production run for under $50k, possibly even $10k? There's been some interesting research from places like CalTech and Berkley in to fully designed MIMO's even with integrated antennas in an SOIC that are in many cases nearly a decade old now.
