Where we work:
Omitron continues to expand upon three decades of experience built at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center providing mission critical support to on-going flight missions, satellite constellations, and flagship observatories.
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland is home to the nation’s largest organization of scientists, engineers and technologists who build spacecraft, instruments and new technology to study Earth, the sun, our solar system, and the universe.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a scientific agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce that focuses on the conditions of the oceans and atmosphere. NOAA provides secure and timely access to global environmental data and information collected from satellites and other sources to promote and protect the nation’s security, environment, economy, and quality of life.
The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) is a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community and an agency of the Department of Defense (DoD). The National Reconnaissance Operations Center (NROC) is the focal point for current operations and for time-sensitive space-borne intelligence reporting for the United States Intelligence Community (USIC). NROC serves as a back-up to the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC), located at Vandenberg AFB, California.
State College, PA
The NASA Swift mission is a first-of-its-kind multi-wavelength observatory dedicated to the study of gamma-ray burst science. The Ground Network for Swift (“GNEST”) consists of the Mission Operations Center (MOC), the Swift Science and Data Centers at GSFC, RF Ground Stations, TDRSS, and Communications Networks interfacing the various elements. The Italian Space Agency‘s Malindi Ground Station located in Kenya, Africa is the prime ground station supporting the Swift mission.
Las Cruces, NM
The Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) consists of the constellation of geosynchronous satellites named Tracking Data and Relay Satellite (TDRS), the Space Network, and the dedicated ground systems that operate them. The White Sands Complex (WSC) is located near Las Cruces, New Mexico and includes two functionally identical satellite ground terminals. These terminals, known as the White Sands Ground Terminal (WSGT) and the Second TDRSS Ground Terminal (STGT) are responsible for communication with TDRS; transmitting commands to the spacecraft, receiving the user data returned through each TDRS, and keeping track of system status.
Colorado Springs, CO
Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) is a major command with headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. The AFSPC provides military focused space and cyberspace capabilities with a global perspective to the joint warfighter.
The 50 OG operates the DoDs largest constellation of satellites; providing critical and enduring capabilities to the warfighter around the globe. Divided among six squadrons and a detachment, 50 OG military, civilians, and contractors number nearly 1,000 strong. This team is at the forefront of the highest-priority changes in the history of AFSPC 50th Space Wing.
Vandenberg AFB, CA
Fourteenth Air Force is located at Vandenberg AFB, California, and provides space capabilities for the joint fight through the operational missions of spacecraft, position, navigation and timing, satellite communications, missile warning, and space control.
San Diego, CA
The team in San Diego works as direct government support to the Space & Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) in the development, integration, testing and sustainment of the Joint Space Operations Mission System (JMS).
