Orion-ESM EGSE
Electrical Ground Facility for Orion-ESM
Provides the core software system for the Electrical Ground Facility of the Orion – European Service Module (former called MPCV-ESM).
European Space Agency

AIRBUS DEFENCE & SPACE
MCS
Monitoring and Control Subsystem
Provides the processing, display and on-line storage (7 days) of all telemetry parameters in real-time and near-real-time in support of Columbus system and payload operations. Further, MCS provides facilities for generation, handling and forwarding of Columbus system telecommands, loading of Columbus system on-board files and databases and execution of automated procedures. MCS provides tools for mission preparation relating to telemetry and telecommand processing, displays, automated procedures, the Columbus on-board timeline and the MCS configuration. It will use project developments generated under the "Columbus Ground Software" (CGS) contract with AIRBUS DEFENCE & SPACE.
TQVS
Training, Qualification and Validation Simulator
Contains all equipment, i.e. hardware and software necessary for Col-CC operations personnel training and for the Qualification and Validation (Q&V) of the Col-CC as a facility. The TQ&V simulator is based on Columbus project developments (CGS-SITE).

Mission Preparation and Training Equipment-1

The Mission Preparation and Training Equipment (MPTE) is used to prepare, plan, and support ERA operations and for ERA operator training. Three identical versions of the MPTE will be installed; at RSC/Energia-MCC; at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Russia, and at ESA/ESTEC in the Netherlands. The design of the MPTE is based on re-use of the real-time operations simulation facility EuroSim, including the Image Generation Subsystem (IGS), and of the Columbus Ground System (CGS). Also, re-use is made of developments from the ERA projects, both hardware and software.
