AbstractA generic software architecture has been developed to support the typical functionality required of the host computer in a telemetry ground station system. The architecture provides sufficient flexibility to permit support of the wide spectrum of requirements typically placed on such systems, while at the same time providing a structural shell which helps to minimize the complexity of applications software. The general issues addressed by this architecture include: - The need to interface to a wide variety of telemetry front end equipments. - The need to provide a convenient consistent, and efficient operator interface to the integrated telemetry system. - The need to support a variable amount and wide range of applications specific processing. - The need to be adaptable across different sizes of host computers. - The need to be adaptable across different host computer systems. This paper defines, at a high level, the architecture that has been defined and the general data structure concepts required to make it work. It further addresses the standardized operator interface supported by the architecture and finally, summarizes the benefits that have been demonstrated to be derived through the use of this standardized approach in the development of telemetry host computer software.
