Abstract
A NEW CONCEPT IS PRESENTED FOR SATELLITE GROUND SYSTEMS, UTILIZING INDUSTRY STANDARD HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE IN A DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENT. A SURVEY OF VENDOR COMPONENTS IS PROPOSED TO ESTABLISH THE POTENTIAL PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PROPOSED ARCHITECTURE. A STRAWMAN DESIGN EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO IDENTIFY THE BENEFITS OF THE ARCHITECTURE FOR VARIOUS CLASSES OF AIR FORCE SATELLITE PROGRAMS. NOVEL USER INTERFACE METHODOLOGIES ARE PRESENTED TO ENHANCE OPERATIONS EFFICIENCY IN THE DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENT. A PHASED IMPLEMENTATION APPROACH FOR THE PROPOSED ARCHITECTURE IS PRESENTED FOR A SPECIFIC AIR FORCE SATELLITE PROGRAM--THE DEFENSE METEOROLOGICAL SATELLITE PROGRAM (DMSP).
