TT&C, a commonly used acronym in the aerospace industry, stands for telemetry, tracking and commanding. In the context of the operations of the CSIR Satellite Applications Centre, this includes support to rocket launches, spacecraft launches and spacecraft operations. The CSIR renders a wide range of TT&C services to a diverse customer base located primarily in the USA and Europe. The centre operates and maintains a number of antenna systems, each optimally designed and adapted for specific TT&C service offerings. Thus each antenna can be considered a product with specific features to support specific customer requirements. With the same infrastructure, the centre also provides satellite tracking and data acquisition services. These services are geared for receiving satellite imagery from a wide but select range of remote sensing satellites orbiting in space.
