Tracking, Telemetry & Control
50+ Years Of Space Communications Success
General Dynamics has over 50 years of experience designing and manufacturing high reliability space electronics for NASA and the Department of Defense. We supply the tracking, telemetry and control (TT&C), precision navigation and timing, and crosslink equipment for missions of human space flight, near-Earth observation, lunar and deep space exploration.
The Small Deep Space Transponder (SDST), developed by General Dynamics and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is a spacecraft terminal for X-Band and Ka-Band telecommunications with the NASA Deep Space Network. The transponder is currently in service on NASA's MAVEN Mission.
General Dynamics’ Space Ground Link System (SGLS) Tracking, Telemetry and Command (TT&C) Transponder provides compatibility with the Air Force Space Control Network (AFSCN) SGLS telemetry and command formats in a single, highly reliable unit.
