1553 SCOE

In the framework of GMES Sentinel-3 Programme (prime contractor TAS-I), TSD has designed, developed and manufactured the 1553 SCOE that will support all the Integration and Test activities performed on Sentinel-3 satellite and finally the launch. The equipment acts as Bus Monitor and Remote Terminal simulation system over the two MIL-STD-1553 S/C buses, i.e. Payload Bus (P/L Bus) and Platform Bus (P/F Bus). The Central Checkout System (CCS) of the Ground Segment can interface the SCOE via ethernet using a dedicated protocol for remote control. All the acquired data can be stored locally or sent to CCS via ethernet. The SCOE is also able to be used in auto-test configuration to simulate both P/L and P/F (to give an example to allow a functional test of the harness used during normal test activities).
