The Consolidated Space Operations Center (CSOC) Communications Acquisition,
SPACE DIV LOS ANGELES AFS CA
The Consolidated Space Operations Center CSOC is being built in the Colorado Springs area to conduct DOD space operations. Its Satellite Operations complex and its Shuttle Operations and Planning Complex will be functionally similar, respectively, to the Air Force Satellite Test Center at Sunnyvale, California, and the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. CSOC Communications CSOC-CS will be common to both missions and will tie CSOC to Air Force and NASA nodes and networks. CSOC-CS faces a number of challenges functional replication, multiple network interfaces, and evolution of other systems and philosophies. The problem is further compounded by an existing system that is still evolving and by a compressed schedule, as CS is the lead CSOC segment. Author
