SwRI Mission Ops Center Connects CYGNSS Satellite to Science

The SwRI-led CYGNSS mission operations focuses primarily on managing the CYNGSS flight constellation and processing its science dataset. The CYGNSS MOC, located at SwRI-Boulder, is responsible for the mission planning, flight dynamics, and command and control tasks for each of the Observatories in the constellation. Its primary tasks include:
Coordinating activity requests,
Scheduling ground network passes,
Maintaining the CCSDS File Delivery Protocol (CFDP) ground processing engine,
Collecting and distributing engineering and science data,
Tracking and adjusting the orbit location of each Observatory in the constellation,
Trending microsat data,
Creating real-time command procedures or command loads required to perform maintenance and calibration activities, and
Maintaining configuration of on-board and ground parameters for each Observatory.
