The Networks Integration Management Office (NIMO) at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) serves as a liaison for spacecraft and scientific missions, and customers needing access to GSFC's communications networks, including the Near Earth Network (NEN) and the Space Network (SN). NIMO provides options, analysis, planning, and testing assistance, as well as networks integration, to meet customers' technical and budgetary requirements.
Although networks services can be obtained at any point in the mission life cycle, early communication and coordination ensures maximum returns with minimal complications. NIMO can coordinate support from service providers throughout NASA, as well as US agencies, foreign governments, and US commercial entities.
Contact NIMO today and start communicating with us so your mission can communicate with you.
Atlas V/ MMS
Date: March 13, 2015
Mission: Atlas V/ MMS
Launch Vehicle: Atlas V
Launch Site: Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.
Launch Time: 0744-0814EST
Mission Description: The Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission is a Solar Terrestrial Probes mission comprising four identically instrumented spacecraft that will use Earth's magnetosphere as a laboratory to study the microphysics of three fundamental plasma processes: magnetic reconnection, energetic particle acceleration, and turbulence. These processes occur in all astrophysical plasma systems but can be studied in situ only in our solar system and most efficiently only in Earth's magnetosphere, where they control the dynamics of the geospace environment and play an important role in the processes known as "space weather."
Mission: Atlas V/AFSPC-4
Launch Vehicle: Atlas V
Launch Site: Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 41 (CCAFS, SLC-41)
Description: Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) is a major command of the United States Air Force, with its headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. AFSPC supports U.S. military operations worldwide through the use of many different types of satellite, launch and cyber operations. Operationally, AFSPC is under the Combatant Commander of the U.S. Strategic Command. This is one of a series of satellites which provide services.
