AbstractIndividual data systems for flight projects at JPL are in the process of being replaced by the single new Space Flight Operations Center (SFOC) that is designed to support multiple missions. The design provides a baseline system that supplies a common set of functions needed by every mission. Low cost adaptations of the baseline with any needed missionspecific additions are made for each mission. The SFOC is being developed in phases. The current phase provides baseline functions for downlink spacecraft telemetry processing with the necessary adaptations and additions for the downlink launch support in April 1989 of the Magellan mission to Venus. The SFOC will be completed in 1991, at which time the planned support includes both downlink and uplink processing for a projected six mission set.
