MEASURING SPACE



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT AC #31468


Measuring space

*PASADENA, CA*—Unmanned spacecraft such as Voyager, Galileo, Cassini, 
and Spirit explore the unknown and expand human knowledge. The job of 
testing these spacecraft systems—and the measurement instruments they 
carry—falls to the Measurement Technology Center (MTC) staff at NASA's 
Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Headed by manager Phil Yates, a group 
of 13 engineers and one technician build interfaces for equipment 
chassis, write test software, develop control systems, and create 
data-acquisition systems.

/Engineers at JPL develop systems to test space-bound equipment./
