In recent decades the aerospace industry has been under increased budgetary pressure.
To compensate, flight operations, the last stage of the mission lifecycle, has
been significantly impacted. Reduced staff and automated systems have lowered costs,
but have also affected intangibles such as risk, visibility and quality.
Astrofrontiers, Inc. offers low-cost tools and system infrastructure to provide the
timely and detailed insight into spacecraft operations that once required a full
staff of engineers and and expensive telemetry systems.
CASSIE™ is a telemetry system infrastructure that can be used in stand-alone applications,
deployed on remote computers, embedded in small appliances or part of large, data
Dependency or Self-sufficiency?
In recent years the industry has moved to shrink-wrapped, per-seat, ultra-low cost
COTS solutions. Only a handful of vendors have the ability to support this business
model thus choice and innovation are limited. Further, additional licenses and annual
renewals quickly add up to undermine the initial budgetary attraction of the COTS
Astrofrontiers can provide a mission or Value Added Reseller the code base to control
their own destiny without the hidden costs of per-seat licensing and expensive support
A compact lightweight telemetry engine can be embedded in end-user applications to
make the program "telemetry aware."
The system can be completely self-contained on a commodity PC and is fully capable
of comprehensive operations from a remote site.
The system is not closely tied to proprietary operating systems or third-party software.
Next-generation data fusion systems will be by their nature distributed and diverse.
CASSIE™ can provide the necessary local processing to greatly simplify the overall
