User Initiated Services (UIS)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Traditional mission operations and space communications services rely on highly scripted activities, often planned weeks in advance, limiting responsiveness to changing scientific events or conditions of interest. A new protocol,  known as User Initiated Services (UIS), will enable more dynamic and collaborative mission operations concepts, reduced user space communications planning burden, and more efficient and effective use of space communications resources through infusion of automated software-enabled services across user mission and provider network resources.
