    The Remote Memory Access Protocol (RMAP) operates over a SpaceWire link or network to enable one node to read and write registers or memory in a remote node across a SpaceWire network. RMAP is a simple but very powerful protocol which is already being used in several space missions. The standard that defines RMAP will be issued by the European Cooperation for Space Standardization in mid 2009. This paper provides a brief overview of RMAP, describes several important applications of RMAP, presents the RMAP IP cores developed by UoD and STAR-Dundee Ltd, and introduces test equipment with specific features to support organisations using SpaceWire and RMAP.
