Flight Dynamics Facility

The Flight Dynamics Facility (FDF) provides expertise in navigation analysis and operations planning, orbit determination, network operations support, and critical real-time mission operations. This expertise spans the technical areas of orbit determination for low-Earth, geosynchronous, lunar, libration-point and other heliocentric orbits, and expendable launch vehicle and human spaceflight operations. FDF evaluates tracking data from the Space Network, Near Earth Network, Deep Space Network, and NASA and Department of Defense C-band radar sites, and certifies tracking capability for new stations needed for mission support.
