It has been awhile since we posted an update about the Automated Safety Warning Controller (ASWC) project and a lot has been accomplished since we last shared the project’s progress. In fact, Phase 2 of the project will be completed in the next couple months. As mentioned in the last update, one of the main objectives for Phase 2 was the design and implementation of a Satellite Operations Center Command System (SOCCS) ASWC interface that TMC operators could use to monitor and control basic functions of Controller devices in the field.
