SSP - SLE Service Provider

The SLE software solution for connecting Mission Control Centers to Ground Networks.


The SSP (SLE Service Provider) software interconnects mission control centers to baseband ground station antenna sites via the CCSDS Space Link Extension protocol (SLE) over IP based networks. It is a highly versatile and modular gateway for use in ground stations and network management centers. The software package runs on all platforms that support Java™. The SLE services F-CLTU, RAF, RCF and ROCF services are fully supported.


No restrictions

The SSP does not depend on third party libraries or APIs and can be used for any mission without any restrictions including military missions.

Easy integration
The SSP provides a TCP/IP monitoring and control interface that allows easy integration of the software in the ground segment infrastructure. This allows for full automation of SLEservice provisioning. Additionally, the SSP can be monitored and controlled locally or remotely via a user-friendly web-based GUI.

Multi mission support
The SSP supports multiple services and missions concur-rently. SSP serves as the access point for all external users of the provided SLE services.

High data rate support
The SSP has been tested with data rates above 100Mbps.

Automated offline delivery mode
The SSP provides an automated offline delery mode. Mission Control Centers can request the playback of their mission’s TM automatically without the need of operator intervention at the ground station.Supported baseband unitsThe SSP currently supports connecting to Cortex Quantum, XL and NT TM/TC baseband units. Due to the modular design of the SSP interoperability with other baseband units can be added easily.
