Ground Systems & Customer Support

Ground Systems  

A part of our total systems capability, Orbital ATK delivers reliable, robust and high-performance ground systems that ensure continual contact with satellites for telemetry and command in both normal and contingency conditions.

As a satellite operator, Orbital ATK understands the importance of reliable and continuous service. Our ground systems are developed using redundant, program-proven hardware to insure stability and uninterrupted full operation. The EPOCH and OASIS commercial software packages used in our ground systems have been proven on multiple satellite missions and feature very user-friendly interfaces.

Customer Support

Our GEO team provides a comprehensive training program in satellite analysis and operations. This program, conducted for engineers and controllers, includes:

Technical support continues for the life of the system, with anomaly resolution assistance that can be initiated with a single phone call. Periodic customer meetings are held to improve operations and share lessons learned.

Mission Control Complex
Orbital’s a state-of-the-art Mission Control Complex (MCC) is located at the company’s headquarters campus in Dulles, Virginia. The $3.3 million MCC consists of:

Together with the company’s Satellite Manufacturing Facility (SMF), which accommodates development, production and testing of multiple satellites, the new MCC offers spacecraft operators a “one-stop shop” for the manufacture, launch, deployment and mission operations of new satellites.

The MCC is used to train client operations personnel, to conduct dress rehearsals of missions, to operate and test spacecraft, and to support Orbital ATK space systems over the entire life of their mission.
