CYGNSS completes early mission milestone

The CYGNSS mission team completed its first major milestone this June when the team met with NASA for the System Requirements Review and Mission Definition Review (SRR/MDR).

At the meeting, CYGNSS’s science objectives and requirements, the relationship between those requirements and the engineering design of the mission and a first draft of the mission architecture were evaluated.

The NASA review board approved of CYGNSS’s progress to date and the mission is on schedule to launch in October 2016.

Please join us in congratulating the CYGNSS mission team, including Professors Ruf, Posselt and Ridley!
