Assist the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) team mainting the current constellation as well as working with the Space Network to modernize the White Sands Complex (WSC) ground system for the new generation of TDRS. This very intense process involves modernized Command and Telemetry systems, new generation Ground Based Beamformers (GBBF), two Ka-Band End-to-End Test Antenna systems, and SGLT upgrades associated with the new TDRS Spacecraft. The primary TDRS ground terminals are located near Las Cruces, New Mexico. These two functionally identical ground terminals, White Sands Ground Terminal (WSGT) and Second TDRS Ground Terminal (STGT), are collectively known as the White Sands Complex. Customer forward data is uplinked from the ground segment to a TDRS and relayed from the TDRS to the customer spacecraft. Return data is relayed from the customer spacecraft through a TDRS to the WSC ground segment and then on to the customer designated data collection location. The three operational TDRS satellites are located in geosynchronous orbit above three different regions of the Earth.
