AbstractThis paper describes operator interface design and implementation of control and monitor display subsystems for satellite tracking, telemetry and commanding stations. It presents an overview of station configuration, functions and operating modes. These are used as the basis for a discussion of the human/machine interface characteristics required for effective operation and maintenance of the station. This includes display techniques, operator control mechanisms, methods for minimizing operator input requirements (and, hence, sources of human error), and system adaptation to operator skill level. Finally, table-driven display generation and control processing approaches and their inherent flexibility and compactness are presented.
