Manufacturer of space hardware subsystems, Com Dev has announced that NASA's TDRS K satellite was successfully launched on 30 January with Com Dev-built filters and switches on board. The Boeing-built new satellite provides NASA with crucial crosslink communications capability between Earth-orbiting spacecraft and control and data processing facilities on the ground. TDRS K is the first of three Tracking and Data Relay Satellites planned to augment the earlier TDRS constellation that serves as NASA's means of continuous, high-data rate communication with the Hubble Space Telescope, the International Space Station and dozens of unmanned scientific satellites in low earth orbit.
