Fault-tolerant computing systems for aerospace applications are discussed with a view toward fault classification, figures of merit, fault-tolerant architectures, coverage estimation, and automated methods of reliability evaluation. The combined performance and reliability of a system are examined, and the configuration optimization of a gracefully degradable computing system is analyzed. Current research in the design, analysis and validation of FTC systems is surveyed with attention to fault-tolerant software techniques. It is noted that the present hardware technology is equipped with all the capabilities necessary to build the required fault-tolerance into digital computing systems
