Columbus MCS-R Design and Development

In the framework of a Columbus programme lasting until 2024, the migration of current MCS functions towards the next generation of MCS (based on EGS-CC) is currently being prepared and analyzed. The essential Phase B approach consists of engineering activities (requirements re-engineering, software architectural design engineering) as well as prototyping activities (design and development of prototypes).

Technologies used: Java, Eclipse, Maven, Jenkins, Nexus, Git, ATLASSiAN Confluence, Jira, Apache Karaf (OSGI), Apache Hadoop, JeroMQ, ActiveMQ, CORBA, UML, Cloudera Cluster Management, PostgreSQL, ADA, Enterprise Architect, DOORS

EGS-CC Integration and Development

The European Ground Systems – Common Core (EGSCC) is a European initiative to develop a common infrastructure to support space systems monitoring and control in pre- and post-launch phases for all mission types. The EGSCC development environment is a Continuous Integration Environment.

Technologies used: Java, Eclipse, Maven, Jenkins, Nexus, Git, ATLASSiAN Confluence, Jira, Apache Karaf (OSGI), Apache Hadoop, JeroMQ, CORBA, UML, Cloudera Cluster Management, PostgreSQL

PyCon –A python connection broker

PyCon (Python Connect) was developed to support the MCS/SATMON Client Virtualization of the Columbus Project at DLR/GSOC. It provides the middleware that is necessary to manage and configure the connection and assignment of Thin Clients to MCS Clients and SATMON Clients. Therefore, it consists of a PyCon DB that holds all information about physical machines and virtual machines, PyCon Config that provides a graphical user interface to administer the assignment of virtual machines to Thin Clients and PyCon Login that consists of an interface for the Thin Client for end user interaction.

Technologies used: MySQL, Python, PyQt, ZeroMQ, JSON

CalipsoStat –A python data analysis tool for the CALIPSO mission

In order to obtain statistically significant data from the CALIPSO mission and to draw concrete conclusions for the aspired MERLIN mission, a software was developed as the need for a fast and easy way to process the data was apparent and no such tool was publicly available.

Technologies used: Python, PyQt, HDF
