dc.description.abstract This paper describes the Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL) Data Analysis (EDA) system. The EDA software supports the real-time interpretation of Multiple Frequency-Shift Keying tones provided by the spacecraft. The objective of this software is to provide communication of status between the spacecraft and the mission personnel on Earth during critical events when low rate telemetry is not possible. Although these communications cannot be used to affect the landing due to the length of time required at these distances, this information is important in the case of a mission failure. Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) will utilize the EDA software during EDL. Juno usage will include deep space maneuvers, Jupiter orbital insertion, and its period reduction maneuver. Results are presented from the Juno tones test. Simulated MSL and Juno signals were also generated and these results are analyzed. en_US
