The scheduling of the activities for each of the antennas in each of the three complexes that make up the DSN is carried out well in advance by the teams that coordinate and control the care of all the missions in progress.
Each period of time that is assigned to an activity carried out by an antenna is called “PASS”, and is defined by the following parameters:
- Start time
- End time
- Station (antenna)
Here are the passes planned for the current week:
We currently track dozens of spacecraft linked to missions of a scientific nature. You can learn more about each of them in the following link:
You can also see what each of the stations (antennas) of the three DSN complexes are doing through the DSN NOW application.
