Testing and validation of the ground segment and ground segment components are prerequisites for operations success. To improve the current approach, OPS-G is working on an innovative concept that will allow developers to validate and demonstrate their system in a pre-operational environment.
The environment will ensure validation at subsystem level and end-to-end testing from radio-frequency systems to the Mission Control System. While the facility partly exists today, it is not yet formally organised.
In order to achieve the new functionality, a reorganisation of the Ground Station Reference Station in ESOC's H building into a Ground Segment Reference Environment will take place, including:
* Ground Station Environment
* Mission Control System Infrastructure Environment
* Network Environment
* Workshop for hardware integration and wiring
The presentation will introduce the concept and the steps required to achieve the new functionality.
