During the concept phase and initial design of a NASA spacecraft, no NASA project says, 'I want an expensive ground system'. In fact, as with other parts of the total project, a zero cost option is the preferred choice. Our experience has shown that putting together a 'low cost' ground system including development systems, control center and ground station, is not as simple as one is first led to believe. This paper addresses several areas of ground system design: onboard spacecraft, ground… CONTINUE READING
