Space-Tracking Antennas

The Space Science Center's Space Mission Operations Center is a control center used to remotely operate the satellite Earth station ground assets run by the Center. These Earth stations include:

  • 21-M Space-Tracking Antenna
  • 13-M antenna system
  • 24 ft. antenna system
  • 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.
