AgiSpacES develops agile and iterative product development methods for development of embedded systems taking into account the special characteristics of space industry. The project focuses especially to the handling of present standards and regulations, and their influence to the development work. In the field of software engineering it has been recognized that the utilization of agile methods can improve the efficiency and flexibility of the development work without sacrificing the wellbeing of the developers. AgiSpacES is based on foundations made in the AgiES project. The work done in AgiES is extended to cover the strictly standardized and regulated field of space industry. The results of the project will be published as a collection of agile and iterative practices which have been developed during the project and been found usable in development of embedded systems in space industry. The results will be valuable not only for the companies in space industry but also in several other domains where standards and regulations affect the development work.
