The long term goal of this program is to have a reliable, inexpensive, satellite-based, world-wide realtime ocean monitoring system. This system will allow cost effective monitoring of all ocean data platforms, including ocean buoys, ocean gliders, and other newly developed ocean monitoring systems. The ODTML Ocean Data Telemetry Microsat Link system consists of three components, being developed in unison under two different ONR contracts. The components are 1 the Spacecraft Communications Payload SCP that will fly on satellites, 2 the Ground to Space Communications Terminal GSCT that will be placed on the various ocean platforms, and 3 the Network Control Center NCC which will provide the communications link between the users and the ocean platforms.
