CPI Antenna Technologies in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), has designed and built nine 34-meter (111 ft) antennas for NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN), and upgraded 64-meter (210 ft) and 70-meter (230 ft) antennas originally built in the 1960s. The antennas, located near Canberra, Australia, use a new servo-control system to more accurately position and point each antenna, improving communication and tracking of space probes on Mars and other spacecraft travelling beyond our galaxy. The largest and most sensitive scientific communications system in the world, the DSN helps scientists explore the universe.
