The ECSS-E-70-32A test and operations procedure language standard was published in 2006 and there is still no system fully compliant with this standard and fully adequate for being used in both AIT and Operations. The objective of this activity is to perform all pre-requisite work that is required for ensuring a successful development.A few systems have been prototyped/developed based on updating existing facilities but full compliance with thestandard is still not achieved.The objective of this activity is to perform all pre-requisite work that is required for ensuring a successful development of a new generation of test and operations automated procedure language and related preparation and execution environment, based and fully compliant with ECSS-E-70-32, guaranteeing: – full adequacy to AIT and operations automation needs including configuration for domain specific issues, – long-term maintainability as required by long-term missions, – adherence to ECSS-E-70-31 (monitoring and control data definition) and ECSS-E-70-32 abstractionsas required in order to support extensive procedure validation and verification campaigns, operations support and components stability and evolution, etc.The work to be performed will consist in:-identifying and specifying the components of an overall procedurepreparation and execution systems includinginteractions with the space system monitoring and control database software;-identifyingand specifying the domain specific needs and where needed, additions to , i.e. tailoring, the standard;-developing standard parsers/compilers for ECSS-E-70-32 procedures and producing feasibility reports for fullcompliance to the standard.
