Simulations are a crucial aspect of launch preparations at ESOC.
The main objective of the simulation campaign is to train the permanent Flight Control Team together with other support teams that join it during the intensive launch campaign; these include teams from flight dynamics, ground systems, the satellite manufacturer and the project team from ESTEC. Together, these are trained into a single, integrated Mission Control Team focusing on time-critical Launch and Early Orbit Phase as well as contingency operations.
