Paper Abstract

The present paper describes the evolving role of flight software in the operation of the Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instruments. The CERES software interface allows for the instruments' onorbit modification and control from the ground, and it enables execution of supplemental tasks. Overall, the constant evolution of the CERES flight software plays a crucial role in the accomplishment of the mission's scientific objectives.
