Welcome to the AMMOS Website!
The Advanced Multi-Mission Operations System (AMMOS) provides most of the ground data system functions needed to design, implement, and operate a Mission Operations System (MOS).
AMMOS consists of a core set of products that can be readily customized to accommodate the specific needs of individual missions. It is based on a simple idea: build the elements of an MOS that are common to multiple missions once rather than individual missions duplicate development and maintenance effort.
Using AMMOS lowers mission cost and risk by providing a mature base for mission operations systems at significantly reduced development time. AMMOS enables Principal Investigators by providing direct, immediate, flexible, and seamless interaction with their instruments and data from almost any location without requiring expertise in mission operations or the AMMOS.
High quality and cost effectiveness of our products is why NASA has chosen the AMMOS to support NASA Deep Space and Astrophysics missions.
