Mercury

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; including spacecraft data, flight dynamics products, mission planning products, and any other data products.  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 re-delivery 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.
