TC Modeling

It's now possible to "model" sending a command without sending it. The idea is to set up your TSC or CCS "as though" a command had been sent.
Why would we do this?

There are different scenarios:
  • a command has been generated by another ground segment element or EGSE, and we would like our system to "expect" the same command responses. You could imagine this being useful for an SVT.
  • a command has been generated onboard in a way that is predictable on ground. So for example we could have uplinked a file containing MTL commands that will execute at a specific time.

There are two new equivalent command syntaxes:

tcmodeltcsend ... model
