This paper focuses on SSA's prototype Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) Data Processing Chain (DPC), providing an overview of the main tasks to be executed, namely: Correlation, Orbit Determination, Orbit and Covariance Matrix Propagation, and Observation Planning Request Generation. The DPC will be deployed on a Common SSA Integration Framework (COSIF) and is based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This paper is focused on the architecture of the system. An overview of the capabilities of the operator HMI is also provided.
