Satellite Operations

Satellite operations refer to the processes and activities involved in managing and controlling a satellite in orbit. This includes monitoring the satellite’s health, adjusting its orbit, managing its communication with ground stations, and ensuring it functions as intended. Satellite operations are typically conducted by specialised teams of engineers and technicians who work around the clock to keep the satellite operational and ensure it delivers the expected services or data. The satellite owner or operator may perform these operations or be outsourced to a third-party service provider.
