Paper Abstract

A framework for the construction of network services for observation planning and execution is presented. The framework is implemented using portable public domain software packages, and its components present a simple, self-descriptive application programming interface. Typical components are functionally independent units which can provide services to local/remote clients either via direct connections, or via a WWW gateway. A remote user or software-agent can query a component in order to discover the command set supported.
