ACIS Science Instrument Software Requirements Specification

36-01103 Rev. H

1.0 Introduction

The AXAF-I CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) Science Instrument Software is being developed by the Massachusetts Institute Technology, Center for Space Research (MIT-CSR) as part of the ACIS Digital Processor Assembly (DPA). The DPA resides on-board the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility - Imaging (AXAF-I). The DPA Science Instrument Software is responsible for acquiring and processing image data from the ACIS CCD Imaging Spectrometer and transferring the processed data to the AXAF-I Command and Telemetry Unit (CTU), which is then responsible for sending the information to the ground.

1.1 Purpose

The ACIS Science Instrument Software Requirements Specification defines and describes the operations, interfaces, performance, and quality assurance requirements of the ACIS Science Instrument Software. The requirements described in this document are derived from the ACIS Contract End Item (CEI) Specification, and the AXAF-I to Science Instrument (SI) Interface Control Document (ICD).

1.2 Scope

This document applies to the ACIS DPA Science Instrument Software. It does not provide information for the Ground Support Software (GSS), which is maintained separately as part of the Electronic Ground Support Equipment (EGSE).

This document supplies information applicable to the SDM02 Software Requirements Specification and generally follows the format specified by IEEE 830-1993 Section A-5.

By mutual agreement, MSFC Software Management and Development Requirements Manual MM8075.1 which supersedes MA-001-006-2H, forms the basis for this plan.
