File Interchange System. The File Interchange System Tool is an automated process that allows a user to submit commands, files, and experiment kernels (E-Kernel) to the FIS for upload to the spacecraft and to the University of Arizona's GRS database for record keeping. The FIS tool uses JPL-supplied tools to create full Spacecraft Activity Sequence Files (SASFs) and place them in the FIS. It is command-line driven to allow batch processing and simple terminal access. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) is also available to allow browsing of input files and creation of the E-Kernel.
