This paper articulates how Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and cloud computing together can facilitate technology setup in Telemetry (TM) processing with a case study from the Egyptian space program (ESP) and a comparative study with space situational awareness (SSA) program in European space agency (ESA), Moreover, this paper illustrates how cloud computing services and deployment models enable software and hardware decoupling and making flexible TM data analysis possible. The large amount of available computational resources facilitates a shift in approaches to software development, deployment and operations.
