Abstract: The BepiColombo Science Operations Control System (BSCS) is the set of systems required for conducting the Science Operations at the BepiColombo Science Ground Segment (SGS), including the data processing pipelines The BSCS will be an heterogeneous system, built upon software delivered by the SGS, Instrument Teams spread along Europe and the mission independent Science Archives and VO Team (SAT) at ESAC. It will be also a long lifetime project, with an implementation split in two stages: some functionality of the BSCS will be ready at Launch (2016) and other functionality needs to be ready at Mercury arrival (2024). As a consequence, the design of the BSCS follows a modular and flexible approach based on past experiences from other missions.
