Paper Abstract

Instrument and small satellite missions often lack the budget, engineers, or experience to develop their own ground data and mission operations systems. The Advanced Multi-Mission Operations System (AMMOS) Instrument Toolkit (AIT) is an open source toolkit developed in support of International Space Station and small satellite missions at NASA with the intention of providing critical capabilities for mission development and operations in a light-weight and easily configured suite of tools.

AIT provides capabilities for commanding and sequencing, telemetry processing, scripting via a Python API, Deep Space Network SLE interfaces, and a web-based API and user interface for near real time operations monitoring. AIT aims for installation and configuration simplicity and keeps dependency requirements to a minimum, allowing for the toolkit to be installed and setup in only a few simple steps. Additionally, AIT is licensed under the permissive MIT license and available via public source control systems for ease of adoption and interagency collaboration.
