& Control System (MCS)

For the development and integration of ground system in the launch application and satellite mission, the MCS (Monitoring and Control) system is almost mandatory to control and monitor the antenna subsystem, receiver, recording system, data processing system and so on. For real launch missions and satellite operation, the real-time operator can’t manipulate the whole subsystem to check their current status in local and remote mode. In addition, most of the control room is apart from the equipment room, therefore the operator should manage the most of the subsystem remotely.

In fact, the MCS can support the function of one-man operation to check the whole status of the system in the ground station but also to control and monitor in local and remote station. The final local status shall be transmitted to the mission control center (or satellite control center) for launch decision and satellite operation.
