Date: Wednesday, 17 April 2019
Topic: Cloud-Based Telemetry Processing?
Speaker: Dr. Chandru Mirchandani - an INCOSE Fellow; AIAA Associate Fellow and IEEE Senior and Life Member.
Historically, ground systems for space telemetry and commanding have been developed on a mission-by-mission basis. Ground telemetry system designs were rarely reused across projects because schedule-driven development cycles did not allow for the inclusion of additional features to accommodate future mission formats and/or large varieties of operational scenarios. Because of the custom nature of these ground systems, reuse often required extensive changes in software, hardware, and firmware to meet new mission needs. A new generation of processing modules and systems using a cloud-based architecture will afford up to an order of magnitude in cost reduction and improved reliability and flexibility over present generation systems.
