The EGS software has a modular structure, which is run under the Windows NT operating system. The software functions of the EGS can be separated into four groups, which are listed below.
The main software functions are displayed beneath.Because the resources for the implementation of the software are limited, these functions are planed to be implemented stepwise. First all basic functions, which are necessary to receive, store and display the scientific and house-keeping data will be implemented. Then functions for the uplink and finally the higher level image processing algorithms are planed to be implemented.
