On the MOSS SAT MOD, how often must
the operator update ephemeris data for each
Every 4 days
Once a week
What kind of data defines type, orientation,
and shape of a satellites orbit?
In addition to providing information critical
for calculations of antenna-aiming data,
ephemeris data is used by satellite receiver
systems for what, if any, of the following?
To allow the system to automatically
turn itself on and off to copy satellite
To allow the system to earth-locate the
image and merge a location grid
To provide passwords that allow the
system to pass commands to the
