Mercury is a sophisticated automation application for delivering, tracking, and approving file-based mission data products.

Mercury is a key tool in providing for autonomous mission operations, and reduces manpower requirements for managing volumes of data over the mission life. Mercury can manage any data products, including spacecraft data, flight dynamics products, and mission planning products, for example.

Mercury will issue alerts if products are not produced or delivered as expected. It includes a web portal for viewing product tracking information, for requesting redelivery of products, and for approving products. The product flow is user-defined.

Mercury was developed initially as the Data Management System (DMS) for the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), and now is a key part of the automation capability providing autonomous operations for both LRO and Landsat-8. From the outset, the product was designed to be mission-neutral and reusable.
