Mission Control and Data Systems

The past year marks several important accomplishments for Mission Control and Data Systems, which provide the control and performance analyses of NASA's robotic Earth-orbiting spacecraft. The Spacelab Data Processing Facility, previously located at the Goddard Space Flight Center, was consolidated successfully at the Marshall Space Flight Center, resulting in a cost savings of more than 50 percent in the processing of Spacelab and Shuttle-attached payloads data. In FY 1995, NASA Mission Control and Data Systems provided 39,500 hours of mission control services to 11 on-orbit science missions.
