Mission Ops

SOLSTICE mission operations were run from the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) of the University of Colorado at Boulder. There are two main components: uplink and downlink. The uplink element utilizes a science user resource oriented planning and scheduling system. Downlink operations include near realtime operations and engineering mission analysis. All mission operations support software was developed at LASP utilizing both professional Research Assistants and undergraduate and graduate students. The SOLSTICE control center is staffed by undergraduate students.
