AOS (Advanced Orbiting Systems) Products
Our AOS software Shell packages implement the AOS Space Data Link Protocol:
- the AOS Encoder Shell implements the sending end of the protocol
- the AOS Decoder Shell implements the receiving end of the protocol
Both Shells support the CCSDS standards for the AOS Space Data Link Protocol.
The Shell packages are highly portable and can be used on any system with an ANSI-standard C compiler. They are off-the-shelf software components for building ground and on-board AOS facilities. They are also ideal for building simulators, demonstrations and spacecraft ground testing systems.
Note: The AOS Encoder and Decoder Shells handle the AOS Transfer Frames (Version-2 transfer frames) of the AOS Space Data Link Protocol. Our TM products handle the Version-1 frames defined for the TM Space Data Link Protocol.
Our AOS Shell packages are available immediately. Please contact us for further information on technical details or licensing conditions for any of our products.
Addition of Space Data Link Security (SDLS)
The September 2015 issue of the AOS Space Data Link Protocol standard (CCSDS 732.0-B-3) includes the specification of the interfaces between the AOS protocol and the Space Data Link Security Protocol (SDLS). We are currently updating our AOS Encoder Shell and AOS Decoder Shell products to include optional interfaces to the SDLS protocol.
