The Logistics of Control The control segment consists of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer workstations, specialized equipment to format satellite command codes and translate satellite telemetry, and a worldwide networked family of tracking stations (the Air Force Satellite Control Network, or AFSCN) with large dish antennas and radio frequency equipment to communicate with satellites in orbit.
The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program, the Air Force Satellite Control Network, the Spacetrack Radar System used to track space objects, and the Defense Satellite Communication System--all used today to support critical warfighting functions--began in the 1960s.
Currently, ASTRO's telemetry data is designed to be downlinked from the spacecraft to either the NASA Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) or the Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) where it is backhauled onto the Orbital Express Ground Operations Network consisting of three T-1 lines.
Air Force Satellite Control Network This network consists of worldwide remote tracking stations providing assured command, control and communications connectivity between ground satellite operations centers and more than 150 Department of Defense, national program and civil satellites.
