Flight monitoring and control of manned spacecraft requires near-real-time assessment of large quantities of complex data. To provide centralized control, a Mission Control Center has been established at the Manned Spacecraft Center at Houston, Texas. This paper describes the design philosophy for the Display and Control System, with emphasis on modularity, versatility, and reliability. Technical and operational details are provided for the equipment designed and implemented to satisfy the flight control requirements.
