MAVEN Compatibility Test with Deep Space Network

October 28, 2013
Sept. 11, 2013 - At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, engineers are running tests between the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, or MAVEN, spacecraft and MIL-71. The control room is the Kennedy interface with the Deep Space Network, or DSN. This compatibility test with MAVEN will verify that the spacecraft will be able to relay data back through the DSN interfaces during its mission to the Red Planet. Photo credit: NASA/ Jim Grossmann
