Braxton’s booth on the main floor of the 24th National Space Symposium, April 7-10, 2008, at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, CO, was a hotbed of activity for space professionals and families alike. Visitors to the Braxton booth were able to control a satellite real-time through various operational phases and discuss with Braxton experts how best to use Braxton’s commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) satellite communications ground system products and services.
