The SWAN activity was related to the new ESA concept of the Common Monitoring and Control Platform (CMCP) for both the Mission Control System (MCS) and the Ground Station Monitoring & Control system (GSMC). The goal of the SWAN study was to identify the current design limitations of SCOS-2000 and suggest its software extension with a number of features needed for the GSMC.
The aim of the SCOS-2000 Advanced Monitoring project was to verify latest technologies for monitoring and visualization of telemetry data and commands in the satellite system SCOS-2000. The project also addressed the application of the resulting analysis and prototypes in the context of a new European Ground Operation Software architecture (EGOS).
