ABSTRACT: Replacement of specialized telemetry front-end processor (FEP) hardware with flexible and future-resilient software, specifically that with the following characteristics: - Leverages multi-core processors to support increasing data rates and concurrency - Reusable and extensible solution to anticipate platform evolution and technology trends in commodity hardware - Demonstrate a positive impact on development and operational costs - Support for a variety of telemetry sources and formats The main objective of this effort is the development of telemetry data processing software leveraging Spawn, a framework developed by Allied Associates International (A2I), Inc. for streaming data applications on multi-core processors. A telemetry module library built on Spawn shall be developed for telemetry data streams and sufficiently diverse to demonstrate flexibility of the solution in addressing any source or format BENEFIT: Solution is applicable to civil and commercial sectors that use specialized front end processing hardware for de-commutating of telemetry streams in mission control centers. This applies to military, scientific and commercial domains specifically to space vehicle telemetry, missile defense and multiple agencies (Air Force, NASA, academic and intelligence) domestic and international
