Abstract:

The importance of the ground segment in assuring space system mission success cannot be overstated. In many cases, the mission cannot be accomplished without the logic, data, and processing that the ground segment provides. The Global Positioning System GPS payload, for example, cannot provide its functionality without the navigation solution that the ground segment calculates and uploads. Most military communication satellite systems rely completely on the ground segment to perform the difficult job of scheduling communication resources.
