Information on Tracking, Telemetry, and Command (TT&C) Subsystem

The Tracking, Telemetry, and Command (TT&C) Subsystem comprises three elements:

  • tracking to determine the position of the spacecraft and follow its travel using angle, range and velocity information;
  • telemetry to collect, encode and transmit health information for the other subsystems; and
  • a command element that receives and executes remote control commands to effect changes to the platforms functions, configuration, position and velocity.

  • Other topics in our resources on Satellite Communications related to Tracking Telemetry and Command Subsystem include:
