ODC Space provides consulting services for Data Handing Ground Systems Engineering.

ODC Space is specialized in ground systems for Science Operations and Data Handling. Our consultant, Jorge Diaz del Rio, based on his 18+ years experience working for the European Space Agency (ESA) and in cooperation with NAIF-JPL, provides expert advice on the design, definition, production and deployment of SPICE data sets for space-based instruments aboard robotic planetary spacecraft and space science missions.

ODC Space also provides dedicated SPICE training and software development, either in the form of application program interfaces or dedicated software systems using NASA’s ancillary data system for planetary missions, for its use in mission concept studies, mission engineering analysis, science operations planning and scheduling, visualization or scientific data analysis and archiving.

ODC Space services include also SPICE archive generation, following the rules and standards defined by the Navigation and Ancillary Information Facility (NAIF) node of the Planetary Data System (PDS) and ESA’s Planetary Science Archive (PSA) requirements.
