  • TCP’s expertise in the aerospace field started since the company origin in 1993.
  • Presently, TCP’s Aerospace Division is formed by 25 engineers working in two main fields of activities:
    • On-board SW
    • Ground Segment: Monitoring and Control (M&C) and Tele-operation applications
  • Our main customers in this sector are ESA, specially ESOC, and EADS-CASA
on board software
On-board Software
  • Our main fields of expertise in on-board SW are:
    • Real-Time Developments
    • Safety-Critical Developments
    • Testing: Test Harness Generation (THG)
    • Certification (RTCA-DO/178B)
  • Specifically, TCP is working since 2004 in the development, implementation and validation of a adaptive flight control system for UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicles)
  • Other open areas in this field include autonomy systems for planetary missions, combining on- board capabilities of control, navigation, planning and autonomous decision making, with ground based capabilities

slide11

Mission requirements and assumptions

Telecommunications:

  • L2 orbit (1.6-1.8MKm), 5 years nominal mission
  • 15M antennas, in X-band
  • ESA’s X-b near-earth transponder (like Hershel-Plank)
  • Max. data rate downlink 1.5Mbps.
  • Data production rate: 32 Gbits per day.
  • 8 hours/day for downloading the data
  • Ground Stations under consideration:
      • Argentina (Falda del Carmen)
      • P.R. China (Miyun)
      • Russia (Facilities TBC)
      • South Africa (Sat. Appli. Centre, CSIR)
      • Spain (Villafranca, ESA)
slide12

Mission requirements and assumptions

Other:

  • Minimize need of specific resources
  • Variable number of centres during the mission lifetime
  • Minimal requirements on architecture and communications infrastructure. Same configuration HW/SW in each layer
  • Distributed, international environment, ground segment distributed operations (scientific & mission)
  • Possible MOCs, SOCs role rotation
  • Up to 4 ground stations. Normal working hours operations, 2-3 hour-a-day per station
slide13

Ground Stations Technical Requirements

  • Functional requirements (15m antenna)
    • downlink: Xband. G/T=38Db/K
    • uplink: X band. EIRP=81dBW
    • ranging: required but not simultaneous TM rng
    • data rate: DL 1.5 Mbps / UL: 40/400 bps, 4kbps
    • data processing: CCSDS standard with Reed Solomon and Viterbi coding
    • Modulation SCD mode, OQPSK or GMSK
    • S/No 70dBHz
    • BER 1E-5 or less. 5dB TM recovery
slide14

Ground Stations Technical Requirements

  • Cross support and interoperability:
    • M&C: full station configuration and routine operations automation
    • SLE services: RAF, RCF, CLTU
    • Raw data storage & archive
    • Use of COTS
  • Design, implementation, maintenance
    • ECSS recommendations and SLE compliance
slide15

Ground Stations Technical Requirements

  • General requirements on Ground Station Network
    • Need of a GSN Management layer (1 to 4 stations co-ordinated) to ensure 8 h continued operations (routine)
    • Primary and backup network
    • TM on line real time transfer to MOC
    • Science transfer via offline public network
    • Support systems: operations automation and remote operation. Coordination tools.
  • Network interface: consider co-located CCs or enough bandwith to fullfill on line comms.
slide16

Ground Stations Proposed baseline

Some TBDs:

  • Definition of G/S Service provision, to replace the requirement of identical HW/SW cfg (due to heterogeneous G/S)
  • WSO/UV mission service agreement
  • QoS TBD
  • Req. on G/S layer Coordination with MOC/SOC layer
slide17

Now some questions ...

  • Modifications of the space to ground IF ?
  • Ground Stations to consider ?
  • Modifications on ground segment concept ?
  • Communications infrastructure ?
  • International standards (SLE) assumed ?
  • ... ?
slide18

TCPSI possible contribution

  • Ground Stations
    • G/S Management (M&C, Automation)
    • Management of heterogeneous G/S Network:(remote M&C, scheduling and coordination)
  • Distributed SOC
    • Science goal tracking tools
    • planning & scheduling tools
    • workflow and coordination
    • remote payload operations via web
