Abstract


This article considers solution of the problem of testing of command and software management of spacecraft onboard equipment. The object of control is the command and measuring system which performs reception, processing and transmission of commands for interaction between an Earth control complex and spacecraft onboard systems, as well as transformation and transmission of telemetric information about the condition of onboard units. In order to build testing procedures we have designed software allowing to simulate external command and software management by setting different sequences of commands, controlling their execution and analyzing the received data. This approach extends the possibilities of conducting tests, allows to reduce the time of testing and improve the quality of designer solutions.
