Abstract: A new approach to the monitor and control of spacecraft tracking systems has been developedbased on the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) process control standard Manufacturing MessageSpecification (MMS). Station subsystems are interconnected using commercial MMS software tosupport interprocessor communication across a Local Area Network (LAN). Significant cost savingsare realized through the incorporation of commercial Software Control and Data Acquisition(SCADA) packages to support the operator interface. A pilot system has been installed and is inoperation at the Deep Space Network (DSN) experimental Venus complex. The DSN operates a new34-meter beam waveguide antenna (DSS-13) at the Goldstone Venus complex in California. The complex composed of various pieces of equipment with some equipment under computer automated control...
