Abstract: The ability to store and access mission data is a critical element of mission operations. The Center for EUV Astrophysics, {} which operates the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) Science Operations Center for Goddard Space Flight Center, is currently developing the Tomographic Experiment using Radiative Recombinative Ionospheric EUV and Radio Sources (TERRIERS) ground system in collaboration with Ames Research Center and AeroAstro for Boston University {}. CEA is designing a general-purpose data archive for storing, indexing, and accessing spacecraft telemetry. A specification file will describe the mission-specific information about telemetry formats. By reusing software components, as might be possible with the Multi-Mission Archive, new missions will be able to focus their efforts on instrumentation and analysis.
