Each day the antennas are directed to receive or transmit data to any number of robotic spacecraft exploring our Solar System and beyond. This schedule is worked out months in advance by the mission controllers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California USA.
At various times in the schedule, time is set aside for antenna calibration, maintenance, or engineering development tasks. Time is also set aside for radio astronomy projects and mission training simulations.
Below is a scrollable list of our daily tracking schedule for the next few weeks. A list of links to each mission can also be found on this page.
* Beginning and End of Track. Australian Eastern Standard Time or Australian Eastern Daylight time . Data is subject to change without notice.
NB: ATOT, GBRA, HCRA, MSPA, RFC are either Network activities in radio astronomy, maintenance or systems development.
GSSR - Goldstone Solar System Radar.
Deep Space Network - Now
Deep Space Network Now , otherwise known as DSN Now is a fantastic website where you can discover exactly what each antenna is up to and what spacecraft it's communicating with.
You'll be able to see whether we are transmitting or receiving, data on signal strengths, transmission power, spacecraft distance and a whole lot more.
All spacecraft mission links are external and will open in a new tab.
