This position paper gives an insight for self-aware and adaptivity requirements of the sub-systems embedded in a satellite spacecraft. The most significant and considerable issues of self-aware and adaptive systems that are necessary in present and future on-board satellite spacecraft are illustrated in this paper. An attempt has been made to discuss several embedded sub-systems and space environment scenarios of the spacecraft. As a case study, an adaptive sierpinski based dual band antenna has been devised. The adaptive nature of this antenna provides a foundation of longer and more reliable mission life of a spacecraft. Through this paper it will be shown that adaptive, reconfigurable and reliability issues are the most prominent and potential area of research for outer space communication technology.
