Space Programming Language

Space Programming Language (SPL) is a domain-specific programming language for specifying spacecraft onboard systems. SPL helps reduce the complexity of software development for space missions by providing constructs tailored to the unique requirements of satellite and spacecraft operations. The language supports both design-level modeling and implementation, with an emphasis on reliability, safety, and real-time performance. It integrates formal verification methods into its toolchain to ensure that systems built with it operate as intended in the extreme environments encountered in space missions.
