2011 EXPLORER / SALMON

NASA's Mission Operations and Communications Services - Explorer (PDF, 431 KB), October 2010

NASA's Mission Operations and Communications Services - SALMON (PDF, 156 KB), September 3, 2008

This NASA Headquarters Portable Document Format (PDF) publication describes NASA's three communications networks including their capabilities, services, and costs. Costs and requirements contained therein are applicable to the Explorer/SALMON Missions. Proposers should compute their costs for mission support based on the information in this document. Cost estimates for Advanced Multi-Mission Operations System (AMMOS) services can be obtained by contacting the persons named in the above documents. Also if interested in AMMOS tools & services, a copy of the AMMOS Catalog can be obtained. Proposers seeking to use either NASA's Ground Network (GN) or Space Network (SN) should contact the person named in the above documents.

DSN Aperture Fee Tool (XLS, 717 KB), 7 January 2010

This Microsoft Excel spreadsheet calculates Aperture Fees for DSN stations in either Real-Year or user specified Fiscal-Year Dollars for Government, Government-Reimbursable, or Non-Government-Reimbursable missions. Computations are based upon a DSN Base Rate applicable to 2010. Thirty-five separate mission activities can be entered including passes for Multi-Spacecraft Per Antenna (MSPA), Delta-Differenced One-Way Range (DDOR), and Beacon Monitoring for which special cost adjustments are made. After downloading the form, carefully follow the instructions found by clicking the Instructions tab in the lower left-hand corner of the page.
