Abstract — The paper presents an autonomic / self-managingmodel, which can be used in cubesat development to makecubesats self-configuring, self-healing, self-optimizing and selfprotecting.Autonomous and self-managing systems haveemerged in multiple domains, e.g., autonomous ground andaerial vehicles. So far, there is no standard model as to how todesign and implement self-managing, autonomous systems. Inthis paper, we are going to look at how autonomic computingcan be applied in unmanned systems and how it can be adaptedand applied to the cubesat space industry. Spacecraft alwaysoperate in remote environments whereby human intervention isinfeasible and therefore making them autonomic is not a nichefeature, but a required paradigm change for future satellites. Anautonomic capability level model for cubesats is proposed in thispaper, which can assist cubesat developers gradually increasethe use of autonomic features in satellite and cubesat systems.
