Abstract

Earlier at the 11th IAA Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation, we shared our early work on SpaceCentre, a mission control software applica-tion built using progressive web application technologies. The advantages af-forded by the web approach were obvious and tremendous – advanced features such as embedded Google Maps and charting libraries can be implemented at the blink of an eye, with readily available libraries available at the developers' fingertips. SpaceCentre has continued to grow in the six months since, and has now been fitted with the ability to perform actuation on the ground equipment – essentially, the ability to carry out satellite operations as it is being planned. This enhancement has demonstrated organic value in having a web-based mission control centre, and has led to SpaceCentre becoming the de facto ground station application for the institute's current and future space programmes. For the 4th IAA Conference on University Satellite Missions and CubeSat Workshop, we would like to share an update on the current state-of-art of the SpaceCentre mission control application, as well as recent customisations made to support Earth Observation (EO) missions. An intuitive mission tasking mod-ule has been designed around the Google Maps widget to evaluate and execute EO missions. This update is tailored towards the on-going Galassia-2 pro-gramme, a 3U CubeSat with an optical imaging and high data-rate communica-tions payload designed by students and research staff of the Satellite and Air-borne Radar Systems Laboratory, National University of Singapore.
