Operating the SC

Jamie Cutler’s Mercury Ground Station software provides a scalable foundation upon which to add a variety of GS-centric software packages (e.g. GSEOS). Runs on Virtual Machines (VM), which has multiple advantages, not the least of which is resistance to being hacked (just reboot VM from image). Isolated testing, etc.

Very important to be able to script the SC’s operation as QuakeSat did via Linux scripting – fully unattended operation, with daily script uploads from the Mercury GS to the SC, and daily data sent via email to operations team.
