United States manages its communication satellites in the space during the COVID19 pandemic

Navy satellite MUOS-5 was not doing well in 2016. It moved away from the intended orbit and stalled out because the spacecraft was at a distance. The dilemma was there on how the two will connect and continue with the journey. The challenge was the birth of the Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP). GSSAP satellite can take pictures of other orbiters through sidle and beam the images back to the earth. The Colorado-based Schriever Air force operators plotted the agile GSSAP satellite, which is close to the Inert MUOS-5 and inspects it.  There is no clear indication of how GSSAP data provided help, MUOS-5 closed its orbit some months later.

The approach of the GSSAP is a zoom-in extraordinary power that assists the US satellite as the primary duty and spies’ other satellites in the space. According to the report and data from the Secure World Foundation, the GSSAP satellite, and a Space-Centric think tank had a nearby relationship with eight international orbiters from the year 2016 to mid-2018. 

The main job for the spacecraft is to spy other satellites in the space from a close and safe distance, ensure there is no space traffic, and ensure other duties flow smoothly in the area and securely. It also provides the space truck is correct and informs the junk that can use destroy or damages the satellite.

Now there are four GSSAP satellites in the earth orbit with two others launching might occur this year if this goes as the plan. The satellites are part of the increasingly intense stare in the regions above the low orbit of the earth from GEO or geosynchronous from the moon.

Satellite in space is essential because they provide communication, and people cannot survive without them as the world changes. GSSAP protects and tracks the spacecraft during this coronavirus pandemic from accidents or any type of crush his critical than other days.  The epidemic has made communication more crucial during this crisis time, and people rely on the outer space, according to Diana McKissock, during the space Force 18th celebration of the Space control Squadron for cataloging and tracking satellite.

An increase in commercial traffic in space worries due to the rise in political conflict among countries in the space. GSSAP programs primary function is to ensure that all space systems in the space are on track
