Alert Notification System Router


The Alert Notification System Router (ANSR) was developed by Emergent to notify and page satellite operators in the case of unexpected satellite conditions. This benefits mission operations centers that are consolidating or reducing staff, by introducing automation and oversight of ground supports. Sponsored by NASA-GSFC, ANSR was designed to easily integrate with ground systems using the Goddard Mission Services Evolution Center (GMSEC) standards. Using this architecture allows ANSR to leverage 3rd party monitoring software and provide support for multiple satellites within the same facility.
