GSAW2000: Agenda and Presentations

GSAW 2000 was the fourth in a series of annual workshops that facilitate exploration of issues and potential for consensus in software architectures for spacecraft ground systems (SGSs). The annual GSAW provides a forum for SGS users, developers, and researchers to share their experiences through presentations, working groups, and panel discussions. Emphasis is on the dissemination of new ideas and lessons learned in the creation, application, and evaluation of software architectures that meet the technological challenges of SGS development.

The workshop was sponsored by The Aerospace Corporation, in cooperation with the Ground Systems Integrated Product Team (GSIPT) of the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC), the Center for Software Engineering of the University of Southern California (USC-CSE), and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI). GSAW 2000's affiliation with government and civilian institutions has made this workshop a unique opportunity to advance the state of practice and research in software architectures for SGSs.

Technical sessions of GSAW 2000 focused on the role of software architectures on the development, operation, and maintenance of reusable and evolvable SGSs. Specific issues that were addressed included:

  • Flexible architectures to support space and ground tradeoffs.
  • Ground system architectures that support global access for notification and mission tasking.
  • Future technology needs for integrated ground systems.
  • Business cases and acquisition strategies for reusable and evolvable SGS architectures based on product lines, COTS, government products, and reference models. Impact of evolving standards and standards profiles, such as CORBA, UML, and JTA, on the development of SGSs and their integration across multiple organizations.
