Speaker 2:
Oh, hi, this is Touffer. I’m currently incharge of our crew equipment teams. Basically, everything, the vehicle that you’re touching, such as the space to common bags, etc, are going to be under my command. If you’re bringing in any initial equipment, I’m the one that will be taken care of and manifest in and so forth.

I’d like to thank you all for stopping by today. As you know, a lot of this was covered in our previous meeting. But there are a few tweaks I need to make so we can get our transcript updated. Also, just wanted to have some time to talk with y’all.

I think one of the main things I want to jumpstart this meeting off with is what we call the comm link. Let me just talk through what I mean when I say we’re actually getting the comm to the ground or whatever. Now, stop me if I’m going down too deep a rabbit hole but Dragon has basically an S band comlink. That means we can communicate with at least 1500 other resources, we now have available. One of those is called TDRS. Short for thatT Darren rabbit science. No, seriously, It’s short for Tracking and Data Relay Satellite. We may we might also sometimes referred to it as a TTRSS, short for Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System. It’s a little wonky but bear with me.

And that TDRS with one S is currently orbiting about 22,300 miles above the surface of the earth even as we speak. Pretty cool, huh? That’s our primary communication pathway right now. We’re working in agreement there right now with NASA to basically get TDRS coverage for this mission. The second data source, as you know, is from our ground stations, such as the one at White stands, AKA the WSC, and of course, the GR GT and WAMP. We actually have a fairly large network across the world for different coverage. We have two types, one type can just receive, and then another can do two-way directional comp.

All of them can receive there’s only a handful that does the two-way call. So command in or you know voice up we’ve only got those two-way comm stations.

The third method, which isn’t as relevant for your mission, of course, is communication with the station.

Jay tells me there’s an S-band link for that, but I haven’t been able to figure it out myself. Maybe he’ll give us some more info about that when he steps up here which should be in about five or 10 minutes. Jay, are you there?
