The Ames Mission Control Technologies (MCT) project successfully completed installation into Johnson Space Center (JSC) Mission Control Center Uncertified Operations Area. This area provides mission access to MCT for flight controllers to use during International Space Station (ISS) and Space Shuttle Operations. The initial MCT deliveries provide functionality for telemetry and monitoring, providing flight controllers with a composable user interface that allows them to build their own monitoring displays, and provides developers with a toolkit for adding functions onto MCT’s modular architecture.
BACKGROUND: The MCT Project, a collaboration by multiple NASA Centers and led by NASA Ames Research Center, is building a framework to enable software to be assembled from flexible collections of components and services. Functions can be shared, rather than duplicated between centers and missions, with customization added as required by mission or operational needs.
