Lots of history associated with the Air Force Satellite Control
Network and the dedicated people who have served, and those who continue to serve, at some pretty remote locations.
The image can be sent via the Air Force satellite control
network, the joint interoperability test command's common data link or UHF channels.
Arnold was the program executive officer for Air Force space, responsible for the following: Air Force Satellite Control
Network; space lift ranges; launch programs; the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle Program; the Space-Based Infrared System Program; military satellite communication programs; Navstar Global Positioning System programs; intercontinental ballistic missile programs; Defense Meteorological Satellite Program; as well as other emerging transformational space programs, such as space-based radar.
In addition, SI International has supported the Spacelift Range Systems, Range Standardization and Automation, military satellite communication (Milsatcom) systems, and the Air Force Satellite Control
Network since 1996.
* The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program, the Air Force Satellite Control
Network, the Spacetrack Radar System used to track space objects, and the Defense Satellite Communication System--all used today to support critical warfighting functions--began in the 1960s.
The final DCS segment protects friendly space-lift capabilities, including both the [C.sup.2] and communications infrastructure (such as the worldwide Air Force Satellite Control
Network, used to "talk" to overhead satellites) and the launchpads for US space vehicles at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and Vandenberg AFB, California.

Network Space/Ground Interface, (TOR-0059-6110-01)-3, El Segundo, CA, March 1992.
The field office soon grew to become the Air Force Satellite Control
Facility with operational responsibility for all Air Force space missions.
Harris Technical Services Corp., Colorado Springs, Colo., is being awarded a $29,914,895 contract modification to provide for operations, maintenance, logistics and training support for the Air Force Satellite Control
Network weapon system at remote tracking stations around the world, as well as maintenance and logistics support at Global Positioning System ground antennas and monitoring stations, software analysis support for the Global Positioning System, orbital analysis of military satellites in orbit in support of military controllers and security forces at New Boston Air Force Station, N.H.
Support consists of launch and early orbit operations for the Inertial Upper Stage/Defense Support Program; data flow operations for National Aeronautics and Space Administration satellite programs, the Space Transportation System, boosters and other Air Force Satellite Control
Network eternal users; operations support to include satellite support planning, scheduling and reporting, attitude and orbital analysis, and data processing; level software and level 1 database maintenance for AFSCN common user and mission unique equipment; simulation and scenario generation for mainframe systems (i.e.
