Space Internetworking Center

Space Internetworking Center (SPICE) was founded in Xanthi, Greece, on September 1st 2010. Its establishment and operation was funded by the European FP-7 Capacities "Research Potential" program [264226, FP7-REGPOT-2010-1]. Scientific and Project coordinator is Vassilis Tsaoussidis, Director of Internetworked Systems Lab and Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Democritus University of Thrace. SPICE has already defined a cooperation framework with European Space Agency, NASA and several universities and research institutes, including MIT, University of Cambridge, AALTO University, University College London and IMDEA Networks.

SPICE Goals
The main research goals of Space Internetworking Center are:

  1. The design of space protocols that can dynamically adapt to topology changes and communications anomalies, achieving high-rate of data transmission, even in deep-space missions.
  2. The interoperability between different communication protocols, e.g. protocols used by ESA and NASA.
  3. The dynamic and optimized dissemination of space data to interested institutes and organizations.
  4. The utilization of space communications for terrestrial applications, e.g. emergency situations.
  5. The unification of space and terrestrial internetworking communications.
  6. The deployment of delay tolerant networking for the benefit of terrestrial applications such as energy-saving architectures, social networking, etc.
