NASA Space Communications
Speaking to the Stars
Frequentis technology-proven systems and our integration experts work with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) program leads to replace over 23 legacy communications system components into one communications network, standardizing the mission voice systems throughout NASA to support current and future mission requirements.
Since 2009, Frequentis USA (FUSA) has been teamed with the NASA on the Mission Operations Voice Enhancement (MOVE) contract. This 15-year contract demonstrates our longstanding commitment to excellence in voice communications and related services. With the capability to simultaneously connect up to 3,000 end instrument positions to up to 3,000 conferences, the Frequentis 3020 system meets the high availability and expectations required for NASA’s mission critical voice infrastructure.
Frequentis Supports all Manned and Unmanned NASA Space Flights
- Since the first installation in 2009, the Frequentis system has been used for all NASA space missions.
- The most prominent missions were the final space shuttle flight in 2012, and the Mars Rover mission.
- The 3020 is used daily in the ground-space communication between NASA, European Space Agency (ESA), and other stake holders to the international space station.
