The Spacecraft Operations Manager is responsible for flight operations as well as training and preparing the Flight Control Team and preparing flight procedures and databases. During the Launch and Early Orbit Phase (LEOP), the team works in the Main Control Room; during the routine phase, each mission is controlled from a Dedicated Control Room.
3. Ground Operations Manager
The Ground Operations Manager together with the ground operations team monitors the availability of the ground station facilities via the ESTRACK Control Centre.
