The Mobile CubeSat Command and Control (MC3) program will become the ground segment of the Colony II satellite program. The MC3 ground station contains Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) hardware with Government Off-the-Shelf (GOTS) software making it an affordable option for government agencies and universities participating in the Colony II program. Further, the MC3 program provides educational opportunities to students and training to space professionals in satellite communications. This thesis analyzes the MC3 program from the program manager's point of view providing a Concept of Operations (CONOPS) of the program as well as initial analysis of MC3 ground station locations. Also included in this thesis is a future cost analysis of the MC3 program as well as lessons learned from the NPS acquisition process.
