GS M&C - Ground Segment Monitoring & Control
The architecture of this generic M&C system shall take into account the ESA EGOS architecture, as described in the
- EGOS Framework to evaluate and apply emerging technologies like • Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP)
- Open Services Gateway Initiative (OSGI), Corba Component Model (CCM)
- Eclipse RCP
- Model Driven Architecture (MDA)
- Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)
Modelling and development approach reflect the directives of the EGOS Modelling Framework.
In addition to these requirements and to allow smooth migration, the architecture of existing M&C Systems of ESA is also taken into account. Open and standardised (e.g. SNMP) external interfaces shall allow easy integration into any existing Ground Segment / Ground Station Hardware Infrastructure.
In view of the manifold system requirements, the first phase of the project comprises analysis of existing systems and frameworks, software requirements definition, technology selection, system design.
The second project phase is focussing on detailed UML design of the main components such as Data Description, Data Image, Data Processing, Logging, GUI Server and Client, Equipment Access, Parameter Database and Analyser.
The third project phase is dedicated to implementation and testing of component prototypes.
