Second Symposium: Toward a Global Earth Observation System of Systems—Future National Operational Environmental Satellite Systems


The NPOESS Command, Control, and Communications Segment

Mark Sargent, Raytheon, Aurora, CO

NPOESS, a tri-agency program, provides a critical, timely, reliable, and high quality space-based sensing capability to acquire and process global and regional environmental imagery and specialized meteorological, climatic, terrestrial, oceanographic, solar-geophysical, and other data products.

When NPOESS is fully operational, the Command, Control, and Communications Segment (C3S) will be responsible for three operational satellites and residuals. The C3S consists of shared and dedicated resources; ground stations, Mission Management Centers, communication elements, flight vehicle simulators, and other command and control equipment. This poster will display the system and some of the unique aspects of C3 particular to NPOESS.
