Radar, optical and telemetry sensors are operated at the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll's Reagan Test Site (RTS) to support missile testing, space surveillance operations and science experiments for DoD and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The Reagan Test Site is located in the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll (USAKA), part of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean, approximately 4,000 kilometers southwest of Hawaii. The atoll consists of approximately 100 small islands resting on a coral reef formation 1,100 kilometers north of the geographic equator. The two largest islands are Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. High-power radars are located on Roi-Namur where they collect highly accurate metric (target position and velocity) and radar cross-section (target size and shape) data. These data are used to characterize missile reentry vehicles as well as help maintain the U.S. Strategic Command catalog of artificial satellites.

Tracking Station Mission
The Orbiting VLBI tracking station in Green Bank , West Virginia is one of four NASA tracking stations dedicated to support of Very Long Baseline Interferometry satellites. Current and future satellites extend interferometry baselines beyond the diameter of the earth. The trackings stations transmit a maser referenced timing tone to the orbiting satellites. The satellites sample the astronomical signals and transmit the data on a Ku band downlink back to the stations. The tracking stations record the data on wideband magnetic tape and ship it to correlators for further processing. The Observatory and tracking station are located in a valley at elevation , and are shielded from radio interference by mountains to the east and west .

TTC 2001
29-31 October 2001
The Netherlands
Organised by the European Space Agency (ESA)
in cooperation with NASA and CCSDS
Tracking, Telemetry and Command Systems are critical elements for the success of space missions and increasingly require highly integrated spaceborne equipment with significant reductions in mass, recurrent costs and delivery time. Furthermore, a progressive migration to higher frequency bands is taking place and future space missions will require new design approaches in terms of on board power capabilities, modulation schemes and coding techniques. On the ground segment side, associated improvements in RF performance are also required, in addition to upgrade and development of robust and efficient networks and protocols. This workshop is organised in cooperation between ESA, NASA and CCSDS who are working together to standardise TTC communications at all levels for maximum benefit in terms of cross compatibility and cost saving.
The aim of this Workshop is to provide an open forum to spaceborne and ground-based TTC equipment designers, TTC systems developers and operators, communication techniques experts, university and agency representatives. Participants will have the opportunity to share their technical expertise and experiences by formal presentations, informal discussions and round tables. Furthermore, TTC'2001 will provide an overview of TTC technologies and equipment which are available or being developed all over the world in the frame of space applications.

Florida Air Guard Receives New Space-Launch Tracking System
By Senior Airman Thomas Kielbasa, USAF
Special to American Forces Press Service CLEARWATER, Fla., May 11, 2004 – For nearly half a century, Florida has been at the forefront of space-launch technology, and recently the state's Air National Guard acquired new equipment to help maintain that distinction. Adjutant General of Florida Maj. Gen. Douglas Burnett (left) gives the keys of a new Ballistic Missile Range Safety Technology system to Staff Sgt. Kristian Kobilis (right) of the 114th Combat Communications Squadron during a ceremony in Clearwater, Fla., April 30. The new system - used to track space vehicles during launch - will enable the 114th Combat Communications Squadron and 114th Range Flight to better monitor rocket launches from Cape Canaveral. Also pictured (center) is 114th commander Lt. Col. Rembert Schofield. Photo by Senior Airman Thomas Kielbasa, USAF, (low resolution image only) On April 30 members of the Florida Air National Guard received a state-of-the- art mobile system designed to monitor space-vehicle launches from Cape Canaveral. The Ballistic Missile Range Safety Technology, or BMRST, system will enable the citizen-airmen to track – and if necessary assist in destroying – rockets or launch vehicles after liftoff.

space FLIGHT tracking AND DATA NETWORK. The Networks Division of Goddard space During the liftoff and ascent phase of a space shuttle mission launched
    The Networks Division of Goddard Space Flight Center , Greenbelt, Md., is responsible for operating, maintaining and controlling the space flight tracking and data network , which consists of the space network and ground network for providing tracking, data acquisition and associated support. The network is operated through NASA contracts and interagency and international agreements that provide staffing and logistic support for space missions. The Networks Division also operates the Network Control Center and NASA Ground Terminal. The division is responsible for testing, calibration and configuring network resources to ensure network support capability before each mission. It coordinates, schedules and directs all network activity and provides the necessary interface among GSFC elements and other agencies, centers and networks. The STDN , controlled by the NCC at Goddard , is composed of the White Sands Ground Terminal and NASA Ground Terminal in White Sands, N.M.; the NASA Communications Network, Flight Dynamics Facility and Simulation Operations Center at GSFC; and the

Appendix 5B:
LMF Positional Transponder System
According to the baseline mission for a growing, self-replicating Lunar Manufacturing Facility (LMF) presented in section 5.3.4, a 100-ton seed is dropped to the lunar surface and thereupon unpacks itself, sets up the initial factory complex, and then proceeds to produce more of itself (or any other desired output). Clearly, the level of automation and machine intelligence required lies beyond current state-of-the-art, though not beyond the projected state-of-the-art two or three decades hence. Because of the already challenging design problem, it is highly desirable to keep all seed systems as simple as possible in both structure and function. This should help reduce the risk of partial or total system failure and make closure less difficult to achieve at all levels. One of the more complicated pieces of hardware from the Al standpoint is the "camera eyes" and pattern recognition routines (visual sensing) that may be needed. Although it is possible that standardized robot camera eyes may be developed, it is more likely that each particular application will demand its own unique set of requirements, thus greatly reducing or eliminating any gains in simplicity of camera design. The pragmatic industrial approach (Kincaid et al., 1980) and design philosophy in these cases, especially in the area of computer vision, is to: (1) simplify, (2) use unconventional solutions, and (3) "cheat (i.e., solve another problem). It may be that the best way to handle the problem of computer vision is to find a way to largely avoid it altogether.

Phase C/D: Design and Development
During the design and development phase, schedules are negotiated, and the space flight system is designed and developed. The phase begins with building and integrating subsystems and experiments into a single spacecraft. In a process called ATLO (Assembly, Test, and Launch Operations) the spacecraft is assembled integrated, tested, launched, deployed, and verified. Prior to launch, though, the complete spacecraft is tested together in a simulated interplanetary space environment. Voyager, Ulysses, Galileo, Cassini, and many more spacecraft have undergone extensive testing in JPL's 25-foot diameter solar-thermal-vacuum chamber. The image at right shows the Galileo spacecraft preparing for its turn. Click the image for a larger view. Ground systems to support the mission are also developed in parallel with the spacecraft development, and are exercised along with the spacecraft during tests. Phase C/D typically lasts until 30 days after launch. Reviews commonly conducted as part of the design and development phase include: Preliminary Design Review, Critical Design Review, Test Readiness Review, and Flight Readiness Review.
Operations Phase
Operations phase E is also called for Mission Operations and Data Analysis. It includes flying the spacecraft and obtaining science data for which the mission was designed. This phase is described in later sections of this training module: Chapters 14 through 17 present details of Launch, Cruise, Encounter, Extended Operations, and Project Closeout.

Space Shuttle Re-entry Video Procedures for Space Enthusiasts
Amateur astronomers have observed satellites and other space craft since the dawn of the Space Age. Video Astronomy is a rapidly growing segment of the amateur astronomy community and is yielding impressive results. Indeed, dedicated amateurs have even succeeded in obtaining high power telescopic images of the ISS and its predecessors with excellent resolution using home camera/video equipment and software.
When the Space Shuttle Columbia reentered the Earth's atmosphere during the STS-107 mission, amateurs astronomers were on hand to record its troubled flight. Photometric analyses of the better videos of the reentry were able to establish the timing of early spacecraft failure and provide data allowing for the calculation of sizes of some of the early debris pieces prior to the Columbia’s final breakup. This information helped to understand and confirm the early events leading to breakup. The STS-107 work is documented in the Columbia Accident Investigation Board report

ABOUT THE DEEP SPACE NETWORK The NASA Deep Space Network - or DSN - is an international network of antennas that supports interplanetary spacecraft missions and radio and radar astronomy observations for the exploration of the solar system and the universe. The network also supports selected Earth-orbiting missions. The DSN currently consists of three deep-space communications facilities placed approximately 120 degrees apart around the world: at Goldstone , in California's Mojave Desert; near Madrid , Spain; and near Canberra , Australia. This strategic placement permits constant observation of spacecraft as the Earth rotates, and helps to make the DSN the largest and most sensitive scientific telecommunications system in the world.
