ESA ATV data link simulator

In 2009 LSE Space developed a Data Link Simulator for ESA’s ATV project. LSE Space was responsible for developing the specification, designing, implementing and testing the software application. This involved discerning the requirements and understanding the applicable Space Standards and ground system constraints.
The ADLS was designed to allow ESA to:

  • Test the complete ground segment including the RF link to and from a relay satellite.
  • Trouble-shoot TM and TC Chain issues.
  • Prepare and test the ground segment before major activities such as System Validation Tests.
  • Test the complete ground segment including the RF link to and from a relay satellite.

ATV GROUND SEGMENT VALIDATION

LSE Space staff has supported the ATV missions since September 2008 as a part of the ESA ATV Operations Team based in Toulouse, France. 
We have been involved in both the ATV3-Edoardo Amaldi (2012) and the ATV4-Albert Einstein (2013) missions, with tasks such as organization, preparation and execution of the ground interface and end-to-end tests, supporting and reviewing the ATV Control Center Acceptance as well as ensuring the completion of all integration and validation activities.
