CCT proposes an advanced data description exchange approach for space/spaceport systems that will provide a generic platform independent software capability for exchange of semantic control and monitoring information. This new strategy will reduce development, operations, and support costs for legacy and future systems that are part of ground and space based distributed control systems. It will also establish a space systems information exchange model that can support future highly interoperable and mobile software systems. The concept seeks to provide a solution that will ease the adoption of a common data definition and exchange standard for legacy and future systems by minimizing or eliminating the need for custom software modifications. Phase 1 of the research will determine the viability of creating common access services for the space ground systems domain based on use of emerging exchange standards for telemetry, and drive out architecture strategies for cross platform generation of monitoring (e.g. health and status) service middleware. Phase 2 will seek to expand the scope of the target domain to also include control services and create a complete usable suite of services for a broader range of heterogeneous systems.
