Omitron congratulates the Swift team for achieving 15 years of groundbreaking science in astrophysics. Omitron developed the Mission Operations Center (MOC) at Penn State, and our Flight Operations Team continues to perform mission operations today. We also provide sustaining engineering support from our Headquarters office in Maryland. Just as the science goals of the mission have evolved, Omitron has supported the evolution of the MOC systems through cost-saving improvements including automation upgrades to accommodate the changing science operations requirements. Congratulations on 15 years of scientific discoveries and the recently awarded mission extension from NASA which will continue to expand our knowledge of the Universe into the future.
