GMSEC - A Ground System Framework

Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Building 3 Auditorium - 11:20 AM
(Coffee and cookies at 10:30 AM)

The Goddard Mission Services Evolution Center (GMSEC) project is a software framework for facilitating ground system communications. The project defines a common data standard for software components to exchange information, contained in messages, as well as supplying a software infrastructure for conveying these messages. This infrastructure is based in a message-oriented-middleware. Augmented by a suite of in-house components, as well as other compatible tools from government and industry, GMSEC proves a flexible and extensible architecture for ground software systems that lowers cost and increases capability. GMSEC software is widely used and deployed at Goddard, as well as other government agencies that operate spacecraft. The team is in the midst of a major enhancement effort to significantly expand the capacity and capability of the GMSEC system.

Matt Handy has been the NASA GSFC GMSEC API Team Lead since 2012. He received his Masters of Science in Information Assurance from Johns Hopkins University in 2014, and earned his Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science from University of Maryland in 2010.
