6.1.5 WATR Video Technical Support
6.1.5.1 Systems Description
The Western Aeronautical Test Range (WATR) has the requirement to acquire, distribute, record and display video images from a multitude of fixed, mobile, and high accuracy optical trackers in support of a wide variety of experimental vehicles including the Space Shuttle. In addition, the WATR receives video images from a multitude of external sources to include video down-linked from research aircraft. These video signals are distributed to the MCC’s and other WATR areas and are archived on various tape, DVD, and digital formats per specific customer requirements. This video is provided to the Strategic Communications office for distribution to the public. Because of this, the majority of video signals gathered by the WATR must meet established broadcast quality standards.

Video systems technicians are required for the preventive and remedial maintenance, repair, modification, fabrication, installation, diagnostic troubleshooting, and operations support of all equipment used for audio and video services and products associated with the WATR Video Control Center (VCC), Long Range Optics systems (LROs). Requirements include the capability to provide quality audio and video coverage and to produce live television coverage of experimental aircraft flight tests, Shuttle landings, and other special events, suitable for release to national news media and NASA Select.


6.1.5.2 Video Systems Operations
In addition to those tasks outlined in Section 6.1.1.1, the contractor shall:


  • Operate all camera systems (except Video Vans) during real-time and post flight activities for projects supported by the WATR and other projects that are not. While operating the Long-Range Optics, the contractor shall follow established communication procedures, responding to requests from the Range Control Officer (RCO) as to what type of picture and the target to be tracked. It may be necessary during post-mission playbacks to mount the appropriate video tape and configure patch panels in order for the Mission Control Centers (MCCs) to receive the video.




  • Maintain and operate systems in two vans that are used primarily to support Orbiter landings, but they may be used to monitor and record various missions and training activities. The two vans include cameras and related equipment, audio and video recording equipment, and microwave transmission equipment. Develop and install video system equipment in the video vans when required by NASA.




  • Install and maintain all video gathering, distribution, display, and recording equipment unless otherwise specified.




  • Perform board-level and component-level maintenance, head alignments, mechanical adjustments, cable fabrication and installation, including fiber-optics, installation and checkout of various systems and equipment, and other maintenance tasks consistent with the full range of duties associated with a Video Technician.




  • Provide the RCO with a list of all open Configuration Change Requests (CCRs) and Discrepancy Reports (DRs) prior to any real-time support.




  • Maintain documentation on assigned projects and systems (CCRs open and completed, DRs, System Test Reports (STRs), systems usage logs, design documentation, etc.).




  • Act as a technical representative to the NASA Technical Monitor (TM) and RCOs to help determine system status, diagnosing whether difficulties come from WATR systems or other related systems.




  • Perform preflight setup of the MCCs in accordance with established procedures.




  • Work with other WATR personnel on systems hardware and software projects as requested by the TM.




  • Report systems status to the TM. Provide status reports to the TM as requested. Report could include prioritized task list and status, systems problems since last report, and plans for the next week.




  • Recommend improvements and upgrades on all systems as appropriate. Once approved, perform modifications and system integration, system testing, and provide full documentation on all changes made.




  • Maintain all video tape libraries and associated logbooks.




  • Provide playback support. This includes requirements such as normal, slow motion, and variable speed playbacks, and maintaining logs on numbers of requests and tape usage.




  • Operations, maintenance and repair of all equipment must conform with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations and guidelines.


6.1.5.3 Video Systems Maintenance
In addition to those tasks outlined in Section 6.1.1.2, the contractor shall:


  • Perform preflight verification of video line performance.




  • Maintain and repair all equipment to ensure that it performs within FCC guidelines and regulations.




      1. Western Aeronautical Test Range (WATR) Support and Production Control


6.1.6.1 Range Support Services
The contractor shall coordinate the scheduling of assets used for project mission support. In this, the RSS will open BITS (Business Information Tracking System) records and input asset requirement information. The scheduled assets are then posted on the WATR Scheduling Information page. The WATR scheduling information will be updated on a daily basis or as mission support is changed due to cancellation, delay, or other requirement changes. Tasks include but are not limited to:


  • Ensure that WATR assets are scheduled in the most efficient manner to support and meet project objectives. Work with RCOs to deconflict schedules whenever necessary.




  • Use BITS to track the Range system status and planned outages and update the Range “Stop Light” chart as system status changes. Notify NASA and RF&ESS Range Operations Management and RCOs when the Stop Light status changes from “Green” to “Red” or “Yellow”




  • Act as the RCO’s operational representative for assigned projects during mission support. Coordinates mission support to include scheduling support areas based on the WATR 110 Form, notifying WATR support areas, attending Crew Briefs and reporting status to the Lead RCO.




  • Actively participate in mission real-time support in the utilization of WATR resources, managing related resources, tracking and resolving conflict issues, and performing associated administrative duties




  • Exercise authority and responsibility to coordinate and monitor the activities of active support elements during their assigned real-time missions. The RSS will confer with Government RCO’s, Mission Test Conductors, Test Information Engineers (TIE), and other project personnel in the control room, to provide an interface between the Mission Control Center and the various WATR operational areas. All changes in WATR Post Flight setup after Crew Brief, requiring a WATR Waver Form will be coordinated with the Backup Government RCO and or Control Room Test Information Engineer (TIE).




  • Maintain familiarity with the Code MR support processes and the Center's safety manual and conducts work in accordance with established regulations and with respect for own and co-worker's safety. Adhere to proper safety practices at all times, and encourages proper safety practices among fellow employees. Report any unsafe practices or conditions that may exist at subject's work site to the area supervisor, or the current facility safety representative.




  • Track facility work orders, trouble tickets, and preventive maintenance items that are being performed on WATR facilities.


6.1.6.2 Production Control
The contractor shall:


  • Provide and/or maintain schedules of major work being performed within the WATR.




  • Administrate the Configuration Control Boards. Track all CCRs, DRs, and STRs associated with these boards using the WATR CCB Tool. A monthly accounting of open WATR CCRs and DRs will be provided to the WATR Business Manager. A monthly accounting of other CCBs open CCRs and DRs will also be provided to the various CCB Chairpersons. The status of these open items will also be reported in NASA’s weekly O&M staff meeting




  • Provide back-up Range scheduling support.




  • Provide ODIN administrative support for Code MR and MC




  • Provide administrative support for Range Engineering
