Thanks for the question!

SCOS-2000 (found here: SCOS-2000), appears to be a viable option for the ground segment of the Cosmoneer control system.  However, licensing may be an issue since the Cosmoneer is open-source globally, while the ESA has some rather specific restrictions and fees for licensing their applications.

ESA licensing application

Since the Cosmoneer is open-source, the COSMOS command and control system from Ball Aerospace is a viable option under consideration as the ground segment interface.  Here are a couple of articles that mentions its use and legacy:
Article 1
Article 2

You'll find the source code is easily accessible on GitHub:
