UHF/VHF antenna systems

The Earth stations are utilized for satellite mission support and research in radio frequency astrophysics (particularly the 21 M antenna system. These systems are remotely operated from the center which schedules satellite passes, acquires telemetry from satellites, and operates the 21 M in radio telescope mode.

The Space Mission Operations Center is a hub of activity during satellite passes and during the launch and early operational phase of space missions supported by the Center.
