Mission Critical Real-Time Control Systems

2005-2007

Logica Satellite Control System Port

Logica supported mission-critical ground control systems for the EUTELSAT fleet of 15 satellites.

Unusual Systems staff were tasked to lead the design and delivery of a platform port test-bed.

System engineers designed a new architecture based on a ported FORTRAN backend and configurable Java UI. We planned the port of the FORTRAN/C system; managed delivery of solution; staff designed and led team to develop a configurable suite of real-time satellite monitoring and control displays using Java Swing and TCP/IP telemetry systems.

The delivered system de-risked a critical business uncertainty, and our customer avoided a multi-million euro spend on a full software port.
