Is it possible to patch a software that is currently running on an orbiting satallite that utlizes the freertos operating system?
The software will be initally flashed on to the onboard computer of the satallite using SAM-BA.

Updating a remote system generally reqiures that such capability was designed in. The presence of FreeRTOS doesn’t significantly affect that. Normally such an update system shutsdown most of the program during the update unless the system design has multiple flash banks or copies the full program into ram to run.
