The Mission Control Center, located near Houston, Texas, provides the capability for real-time control and direction of manned space-flight missions. The facility utilizes general-purpose digital computers and flexible, special-purpose systems to satisfy data routing, processing, display, control and communications functions. Systems are duplicated to provide simultaneous, but separate, mission control and mission simulation exercises.
