Aerial view of the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex
The Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (CDSCC), located at Tidbinbilla, just outside Canberra, is one of three Deep Space Network stations around the world providing continuous, two-way radio contact with spacecraft exploring our solar system and beyond.
The CDSCC is part of NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN) which provides continuous radio contact with spacecraft. Similar facilities are located in Spain and the United States of America.
The complex, managed and operated by CSIRO, consists of one 70 metre, two 34 metre and one 26 metre radio telescope antennas with two-way communication capacity.
