The Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) will be launched in early 2003, and will perform an extended series of science observations at wavelengths ranging from 3.6 to 160 microns for five years or more. The California Institute of Technology has been selected as the home for the SIRTF Science Center (SSC). The SSC is completing the final stages of prelaunch development and testing of the Science Operations System (SOS), which will support science operations of the Observatory. The SOS supports a variety of functions including observing proposal submission by the scientific community, long range planning and short term scheduling of the Observatory, instrument performance monitoring during nominal operations, and production of a variety of scientific archival products. This paper describes the role and function of the SSC, the architecture of the SOS, and discusses the major SOS subsystems. Examples of products generated by the SOS are included
