Active networks are networks that can be reprogrammed by injecting customized programs into some of the nodes of the network, which change the computation that is performed on packets flowing through them. Active networks have been successfully used to offer adaptable routing mechanisms in disaster scenarios, to dynamically compress data before transmitting, etc. In this paper, we discuss the advantages that an active approach would offer for satellite network systems. We describe issues with the deployment of an active networking platform on a satellite. We detail the design and implementation of a component based active networking platform, which is able to dynamically deploy, instantiate and reprogram software components on a satellite system. We also show how the platform is used to build dynamic media transcoding services and test the implementation of our system.
