Satellites 101

Melissa Butler (ASC '00), Senior Software Engineer, Raytheon

The first satellite was launched over 50 years ago, and the technology is still developing. Satellites now fly a variety of missions: meteorological, observational (astronomical- and Earth-focused), scientific, and communication. Each mission has its own payload, orbital, and scheduling needs. We'll talk about different types of satellites, their orbits, and the ground systems that support them.
