This thesis details the PANSAT Command Language (PCL). The PCL is used for the efficient and reliable operation and commanding of PANSAT. This thesis describes each command of the PCL in detail and precisely defines the intended behavior and anticipated response a command will have on the various states of PANSAT. This thesis develops the user-syntax as well as the protocol- syntax for the PCL and begins to identify potential contingency scenarios. Numerous options and issues that were considered during the PCL development are provided and explanations given as to why certain options were chosen, while others were abandoned.
