ABSTRACT

Satellite Control Systems: Opportunity for DoD to Implement Space Policy and Integrate Capabilities, Report to the Chairman, Subcommittee on Defense, Committee on Appropriations, House of Representatives   [open pdf - 315KB]

For this report, the GAO (1) reviewed the Department of Defense's (DOD) progress in integrating and improving its satellite control capabilities and in fostering integrated and interoperable satellite control within the government, as directed by the 1996 national space policy and (2) determined whether opportunities exist for DOD to standardize its satellite control capabilities by using commercial products and practices. GAO found that the Defense Department (DoD) has not effectively implemented the guidelines for satellite control as set forth in the 1996 national space policy. DoD has taken limited action to foster integrated and interoperable satellite control for all government space activities.
