ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a May 2006 Government Accountability Office report that deals with the condition of the deep space communications network of the U.S. National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA). The report recommends that NASA reorganize the network management to better integrate the communications system with agency-wide planning instead of the current mission-by-mission time allocation process.
