Telemetry, Tracking and Commanding (TT&C) ControlPoint™ (AceCP)
Braxton’s ControlPoint™ (AceCP) is an Automated Space Vehicle and Ground Station Command and Control (C2) application with a "plug-in" architecture which provides nearly lights-out Telemetry, Tracking and Commanding (TT&C) operations. As an integrated package, ControlPoint™ offers a turnkey TT&C solution combined with automation of common tasks to reduce workloads, minimize errors, and streamline mission operations.
Real-Time Space Vehicle and Ground Simulator (AceSIM)
AceSIM is an open architecture, commercial product offering a highly customizable, physics-based modeling framework used to support system design, development, integration, test, training and rehearsals. AceSIM offers rapid deployment capabilities providing basic satellite Command and Telemetry within weeks, not months, enabling earlier development of ground, Bus, and Payload Systems. AceSIM’s Subsystem Models supplement “FlatSat” components reducing the demand on scarce hardware resources during Integration & Test Cycles. AceSIM integrates Payload & Bus Flight Software enabling training of operators early in the lifecycle and checkout of procedures before acceptance tests. A fully-modeled spacecraft ensures readiness for rehearsals and upcoming launch. AceSIM scales as the system’s requirements scale shortening Deployment Cycles, Accelerating Systems Integration, and Reducing Development and Operational Risks.
ACE Intelligent Resource Optimizer (AceIRO)
Braxton’s Advanced Control Equipment (ACE) Premier™ product suite includes ACE Intelligent Resource Optimizer (AceIRO), which provides enterprise-class scheduling and optimization of resources. AceIRO is fully configurable enabling owners to define domain resources, tasks, constraints, and rulesets, without any changes to the software. AceIRO has machine-to-machine interfaces and communicates with Government and Commercial network scheduling systems.
ACE Flight Dynamics System (AceFDS)
Braxton’s Flight Dynamics System (AceFDS) is a powerful and versatile software toolset providing full-lifecycle flight dynamics capabilities. FDS adds value to your flight dynamics requirements throughout any phase of the mission from Launch through Disposal and seamlessly accommodates the internal mission design cycles from Estimation, Prediction, Maneuver Targeting, Calibration, and Reconstruction
ACE Factory Compatibility Tester (AceFCT)
Braxton’s Advanced Control Equipment (ACE) Premier™ product suite includes ACE Factory Compatibility Tester (AceFCT), providing a cost-efficient, portable and rapid means to conduct Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) and Commercial Augmentation Services (CAS) network compatibility testing prior to satellite launch, therefore reducing the risk of incompatibility prior to launch and potential on-orbit failures.
ACE Fleet Level Situational Awareness Toolkit (AceFLT)
AceFLT provides web-based, near-real time Situational Awareness (SA) of space assets and also queries and exports historical data used for trending. At its core, AceFLT monitors assets via multiple channels to provide users with pertinent engineering data and metadata associated with space vehicle status. Users interact via a web client interfaces to the back-end servers, providing roll-up SA for all monitored assets.
ACE Front End Processors (AceFEP)
Braxton’s Advanced Control Equipment (ACE) Premier™ product suite includes ACE Front End Processors (AceFEP) for both red and black side operations. ACE Command, Control, and Tracking (AceCCT) performs black-side processing. ACE Command Conversion, Telemetry Front End, and Key Generator Controller (Ace CTK) performs red-side processing including control and status, ARTS emulation, conversion formatting, and antenna slave angle generation. AceFEPs can be used in any Telemetry, Tracking & Commanding (TT&C) system and are offered as either serial hardware or virtualized software options.
ACE Premier™ Powered Services (SpaceAPPS™)
With SpaceAPPS™, Braxton brings to the Small Satellite community satellite ground capabilities that have been developed over the past 20 years, combined with modern implementation techniques and adapting our traditional offerings to specifically meet the constrained budgets challenging the community. Ground operations support functions are usually an “afterthought” as most Small Satellite operators focus on the space segment and the data, not the day-to-day command and control issues. To ensure a complete solution, Braxton works with each operator to address their specific requirements. Perhaps you need only one of our services; perhaps you need all our services. Whatever the situation, “You focus on the mission data, we’ll handle the rest”.
