24 July 1998 SIM Science Data Center prototype: an integral element of the SIM end-to-end testbed

The Space Interferometry Mission (SIM) will be the first flight of an optical interferometer where the scientific return is co-equal with technology development objectives. The SIM Science Data Center will be designed to monitor, process and archive the instrument engineering the science data collected over the five year operational life of the mission. Furthermore, it will host the postprocessing to be carried out for three years after the end of mission operations. Since the instrument is a complex technological and operations challenge, and due to SIM's ambitious astrometry and imaging goals, a prototype Science Data Center will be built and operated in parallel with the development of the instrument. In particular, this prototype system will be tested with SIM System Testbed-3 (STB-3) to command and monitor that instrument. After launch the SIM Science Data Center will continue to have access to STB-3 for testing of sequences and instrument operations modes.
