Terma Ground Segment Suite

Terma is a leading supplier of ground system solutions to support satellite missions. Terma has worked with all system components and associated processes for managing, monitoring, and controlling satellites.


Introduction

The Terma Ground Segment Suite (TGSS) is a comprehensive set of tools that form a complete satellite control system, from satellite testing to operations. This allows the same tool set to be used throughout the whole spacecraft lifecycle.

TGSS is built on more than 30 years of satellite operations and testing experience, and it reflects many years of lessons learned.

The tools are built with industry and de-facto standards and are compatible with other systems.

Through easy-to-use automation, intuitive user interfaces, and customer centric features, TGSS provides a modern performant platform to ensure customers are able to reduce the cost of operations and testing activities without compromising on quality.

Products

The systems are flight proven – some of the systems we have delivered are still in use 15 years after launch.

They are open systems, allowing a customer to add a wide variety of other packages to suit their own needs, such as flight dynamics and mission planning.

They are deployable in a wide variety of configurations – from single, simple satellites through to more complex fleet/constellation operations.

The systems will run on a variety of hardware – from a single laptop through to very powerful virtualized systems. This ensures that price/performance issues are more easily matched to customer requirements.

With the increasing use of standards, we find that our systems require little or no customization for specific missions. Where changes are requested by our customers, they are normally for changes to make operations more efficient for their specific mission.

Both the CCS5 and SCOS-2000 systems are also available in pre-launch AIT configurations, such that the same system can be used for testing and operating the satellites.

The CCS5 system is Terma IPR, and therefore is subject to no export restrictions. SCOS-2000 has some export restrictions – please contact us for further details.
