Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have developed software to enable industry partners to receive caution and warning (C&W) data displays that NASA’s International Space Station (ISS) Flight Control Team receives, making it easier to communicate and coordinate evaluation and resolution activities. The ISS Caution and Warning Tool is a subset of data from the ISS representing events in various alarm states (emergency, caution, warning, and advisory). This software tool allows Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) partners to receive ISS C&W information that mirrors information on the consoles of NASA’s Mission Control personnel, enabling all parties to view similar-looking screens and to consult from the same perspective. The software sends the status information to subscribers via extensible markup language (XML) message transmissions.
This technology is being made available through JSC’s Technology Transfer and Commercialization Office, which seeks to transfer technology into and out of NASA to benefit the space program and U.S. industry. NASA invites companies to consider licensing this technology for commercial applications.
