From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Space Network (SN) is a NASA program that combines space and ground elements to support spacecraft communications in Earth vicinity. The SN Project Office at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) manages the SN, which consists of:[1]

Satellite generations

Location of TDRS as of March 2019
Location of TDRS as of March 2019
First Generation Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (F1–F7)
First Generation Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (F1–F7)
Second Generation Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (F8–F10 also known as H, I, J)
Second Generation Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (F8–F10 also known as H, I, J)

Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) currently consists of first generation (F1–F7), and second generation (F8–F10) satellites.

The space segment of the SN consists of up to six operational relay satellites in geosynchronous orbit. These communications satellites are allocated longitudes for relaying forward and return service signals to and from customers, any entity with an Earth-orbiting satellite that has an agreement with SN to use its communications services, for data transfer and tracking. An additional TDRS, F1, provides dedicated support to the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the use of the WSC Alternate Relay Terminal (WART). Additional spare TDRSs may be in geosynchronous orbit.

All first generation TDRSs (F1–F7, also known as TDRS A–G) carry functionally identical payloads and all second generation TDRSs (F8–F10, also known as TDRS H–J) carry functionally identical payloads.[citation needed]

A third generation, TDRS K and L, are planned for launch 2012–2013. See TDRS launch history.[citation needed]

Coverage

For spacecraft operating in a low earth orbit (LEO) 73 km to 3000 km altitude, the SN is capable of providing tracking and data acquisition services over 100% of the spacecraft's orbit.[2] Spacecraft sent to more distant or exotic destinations rely on either Deep Space Network or their own custom, dedicated networks.
