GDlogoGeneral Dynamics‘ C4 Systems business unit has finished updating ground systems for three NASA tracking and data relay satellites that transmit signals from Earth-orbiting spacecraft to the ground.

The TDRS satellites also connect White Sands ground station to the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station, the company says.

Modifications and technology updates to the system included integration of new command, control and communications equipment and systems.

General Dynamics has supported the satellites since 1983 and is a subcontractor to Boeing, the prime contractor for building the TDRS satellites.

Additionally, General Dynamics is also the prime contractor for NASA’s Space Network Ground Segment Sustainment project that aims to modernize all of NASA’s space network ground communication systems.
