20 Years Orchestrating the Success of Space Missions

Optimize the processes involved in mission assembly, integration, validation, and operations. 

From the manufacturing to the monitoring and control of the spacecraft, MOIS introduces structured procedure preparation and automation to complex test and operations processes, so you can focus on ensuring the success of your mission.

MOIS is used as a standard by the European Space Agency (ESA). Other national space agencies, private companies and major manufacturers are also using MOIS.
MOIS adapts to your mission. The software supports several complex test and operations processes reducing the time for preparation. It also supports a wide range of languages, including variants of PLUTO, tcl/TOPE, UCL Elisa, and many more.
Quality and Safety
MOIS introduces automation while increasing the quality of testing and the safety of operations by validating the procedures against the spacecraft database and supporting publishing a consistent set of documents and procedure scripts.

Orchestrating and Supporting Every Phase of the Space Mission Lifecycle

The MOIS suite of tools enables efficient creation and execution of operational or test command procedures. MOIS ensures these procedures are validated against the spacecraft database and exchangeable from one phase/team/company to the other.

Since its introduction in 1997, MOIS has been successfully used with over 100 spacecraft.  MOIS has been extensively used to support mission operations procedure preparation, ensuring the commands and telemetry in the procedures are kept synchronized with the spacecraft database.

MOIS has grown in sophistication and now it supports other functionalities such as automation (including schedule execution and procedure execution), On-board Control Procedure (OBCP) generation and support for AIV/AIT activities. 

Because no two missions are the same, we offer you three different maintenance packages with a variety of services tailored to the operational needs of each mission.

Behind the Success of More than 100 Space Missions

The First Landing of a Space Probe on a Comet

Rosetta has achieved what no other mission had achieved before: the landing of a space probe on a comet. MOIS introduced an automation system to the mission, improving the overall consistency of routine operations and giving operators more time for higher-level supervision and analysis.

Europe’s Own Global Navigation Satellite System

Galileo designed to deliver unprecedented real-time positioning accuracy, navigation, and timing services to users around the world. The fully deployed Galileo system will consist of 24 operational satellites, with full service expected by 2020. MOIS is contributing to the flight control procedures of the mission, including exporting automation.

MOIS has been supporting Galileo since the launch of GIOVE-B in 2008 and the first In-Orbit Validation (IOV) Galileo spacecraft, which began the constellation.  Galileo started initial services in December 2016, delivering a wide range of new navigation services that will benefit public authorities, businesses, and ultimately citizens.

Ensuring Access to Time-Critical Data around the World

The European Data Relay System (EDRS) will dramatically improve access to more urgent and potentially life-saving coverage from space than ever before by relaying data from low earth orbiting earth observation satellites rapidly back to Earth.  MOIS has supported DLR’s German Space Operations Center (GSOC) for the EDRS spacecraft and has supported the Laser Communication Terminal testing and operations at Tesat Spacecom.

EDRS will help in disaster relief and operational monitoring services like maritime surveillance by relaying the data as quickly as possible to Europe.
