The Ames Research Center (ARC) Telescience Support Center (TSC) provides the necessary ground operations capability and infrastructure for achieving the mission objectives of the Space Station Biological Research Project (SSBRP). One of the primary operations objectives is to provide the Principal Investigator (PI) access to archived or real-time telemetry, image, video, and voice data. The remote PI is provided access to the Ames TSC capabilities utilizing Internet technologies. To control experiments in the SSBRP payloads, the PI will be able to originate commands either from a console Graphical User Interface (GUI) at ARC TSC or remotely request commands from his/her institution. The ARC TSC also provides the capability for other ground operations functions such as console operator training, mission simulation, payload planning, payload logistics, and ground specimen controls. This paper discusses the implementation strategy of the ARC TSC to achieve SSBRP science objectives. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
