Santa Clara University's School of Engineering added a new tool to its program that monitors and controls satellites. The Mobile Mission Control Lab (MMCL) is a 28-foot trailer loaded with equipment that allows students to communicate with satellites for longer periods of time than ever before. "The satellites we control for NASA and our industry partners only fly over the local area a few times a day and only for a few minutes each time," says Engineering Professor Chris Kitts. "This mobile station makes us more efficient and agile. We now have the potential to more than double our communication time. It's a huge learning opportunity for our students."
