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.


  • Effective: Permits industry and NASA partners to review and act upon caution and warning information transmitted from the ISS
  • Straightforward: Accomplishes partner integration with industry standard XML communication protocols
  • User-Friendly: Includes partner proxy and graphical user interface (GUI) software to facilitate displaying informational messages


  • NASA COTS partners interested in viewing C&W data displays from the ISS
