Efficient and intelligent command and control systems are essential for successful satellite and terrestrial mission operations.
Without command and control systems, it would be impossible for civil, government and commercial flight operators, mission controllers, trainers and testers to carry out the enormous task of monitoring, operating, and commanding today’s advanced technology.
Braxton’s command and control systems mitigate the obstacles of distance by streamlining front-end communications and providing command planning, telecommanding, crypto control, and operator workstations.
These functions, included in Braxton’s ACE Premier™ command and control systems product suite, are used in the deployment of advanced ground control systems used to support specific mission objectives. The suite offers pre- and post-launch maneuver planning, and telemetry, tracking and commanding functions.
Our tracking and commanding operations include the processing, logging, recording, storage, and access of data; database maintenance; monitoring; vehicle commanding; status reporting, and scheduling functions. Auxiliary functions also include internal and external satellite system simulation for satellite testing, training, and rehearsal activities.
As part of the software suite, our ControlPoint™ software, provides Space Vehicle and Ground Station Command and Control (C2) with a plug-in architecture which provides complete operations capability for automated and operator interactive C2 of all satellite and ground equipment. ControlPoint™ controls vehicle acquisition, commanding, telemetry processing, telemetry distribution, and telemetry evaluation. ControlPoint™ also provides local and remote ground station acquisition schedule generation and evaluation; status monitoring and control; data collection; visualization; and support scripting.
ControlPoint™ controls planning functions, such as building command databases, defining and distributing telemetry wavetrain definitions, performing orbital maneuvers, and scheduling resources. ControlPoint™ provides peripheral device control of front-end processors, converters, encryption device control units, and simulators, and controls the transfer of data to archival tools.
Combining the features of three Braxton products, the Front-End Command and Control Communications Processing (AceCTK) system is the backbone of the ACE Premier™ front-end communications solution. The hardware converts and formats commonly used output command streams, accepts multiple input telemetry streams and controls synchronous telemetry data inverters. For more information on how this command and control communications system works, view the AceCTK product page.
