The Navy has a valuable opportunity to improve its own products and operations efficiency by showing its future leaders and designers how to design effective and viabletelemetry, tracking, and commanding (TT&C) systems, and their operation. One system is the FLTSAT military communications constellation of spacecraft, one of which has been a static display at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) until June, 2000. The primary objective was to make this spacecraft operational and thus provide a new operational spacecraft laboratory for other NPS students. This thesis may also be used as a primer for the space engineering or space operations student regarding TT&C systems design. Great effort has been taken to document and discuss current design practices and standards adopted by DOD laboratories, test facilities, and operations centers. A TT&C system designed for a spacecraft incorporating all the traditional subsystems (payload, thermal, structural, power, TT&C, attitude control) is included.
