These function are: preparation of the configuration procedures (by editing the composing configuration commands and by defining the timing constraints for their execution), control of the procedures execution (activation, suspension, continuation, termination, abort), supervision of the procedures execution (status of each single command).
    • The Monitoring Reti Telecomunicazioni (MRT) software application, in charge of monitoring the SICRAL resources real-time status. It also allows geographical supervision of the end-users terminals and networks.
    • The Supervisione Spettro Telecomunicazioni (SST) software application, in charge of supporting the CCR operator in defining the foreseen telecommunication spectrum and supervising any deviation from the expected behaviour.

    The monitoring & control tasks are accomplished by the above listed integrated software applications which interface the following external subsystems: Satellite Control Center, TDMA DAMA Network Control Center, SCPC DAMA PAMA Network Controller, Communication Spectrum Monitoring.
