Abstract:
The wide use of standard packet telemetry protocols based on the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) recommendations in future space science missions has created a large demand for low-cost ground CCSDS processing systems. Some of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) missions using CCSDS telemetry include Small Explorer, Earth Observing System (EOS), Space Station, and Advanced Composite Explorer. For each mission, ground telemetry systems are typically used in a variety of applications including spacecraft development facilities, mission control centers, science data processing sites, tracking stations, launch support equipment, and compatibility test systems. The future deployment of EOS spacecraft allowing direct broadcast of data to science users will further increase demand for such systems. For the last ten years, the Data Systems Technology Division (DSTD) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has been applying state-of-the-art commercial Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) technology to further reduce the cost of ground telemetry data systems. As a continuation of this effort, a new desktop CCSDS processing system is being prototyped that offers up to 150 Mbps performance at a replication cost of less than $20K. This system acts as a gateway that captures and processes CCSDS telemetry streams and delivers them to users over standard commercial network interfaces. This paper describes the development of this prototype system based on the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus and 0.6 micron complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) ASIC technology. The system performs frame synchronization, bit transition density decoding, cyclic redundancy code (CRC) error checking, Reed-Solomon decoding, virtual channel sorting/filtering, packet extraction, and quality annotation and accounting at data rates up to and beyond 150 Mbps.
