This software was designed to automate delivery of tasking requests to a central queue, enabling integrated observation scenarios across multiple assets. It is a JAVA code application that enables machine-to-machine access between a client platform and the Campaign Manager application program interface (API) to post tasking requests for satellites that the Campaign Manager can access. The Campaign Manager tasks satellites via moderated tasking queue in which the operations team allows or denies requests.

A unique feature is the ability to enable collaborating users to make requests via an OpenID/OAuth security scheme that delegates user authorization to the machine-to-machine interface.

This work was done by Troy Ames of Goddard Space Flight Center and Patrice Cappelaere of Vightel Corporation. For further information, contact the Goddard Innovative Partnerships Office at (301) 286-5810. GSC-16059-1
