Payloads Control & Data Management System – CDMS
CDMS combines state-of-the-art, commercially available internet protocol (IP) technology solutions to enable the on-board collection and processing, as well as the ground distribution of large amounts of data from payloads and facilities.
Payloads and facilities can use the CDMS as a router for their TM/TC, for direct point to point IP connections with their Principal Investigators. The payloads also use the CDMS software services for data processing, security keys management and data storage.
The CDMS includes state-of-the-art COTS, with limited proprietary software. It provides redundancy, scalability, flexible upgrades and low-cost maintenance and remote management.
