JSOC - Cluster Joint Science Operations Centre..

Welcome to the JSOC Web pages. The Joint Science Operations Centre is responsible for the coordination of science operations for the Cluster mission of the European Space Agency (ESA). It works closely with the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC), which is responsible for day-to-day operation of the four spacecraft.

JSOC is operated by the RALSpace department of the Science and Technology Facilities Council under contract to the ESA. It is located at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Chilton, near Didcot, UK.
