Mission Control Center
El Centro de Control de Misión nace con el lanzamiento del satélite SAC-B , el 3 de Noviembre de 1996.
To maintain command and telemetry services during the main part of SAC-C orbit, the Station is supported by NASA Ground Station Network, formed by McMurdo Station in Antarctica, SKS in Norway, WGS in Wallops, U.S.A. and Pokerflat in Alaska.
The operator commands the satellite and receives telemetry from it in the same way as he would do when operating from the original station, thanks to NASA Station network.
These stations are used to monitor anomalies or during orbit maintenance maneuvers, since they must be performed at specific points.
