11 Day Mission Posture
• May have only 1 hour notice prior to Orbiter
landing
• Upon notification by Kennedy Space Center, IDF
will contact Tower (x7701) to activate the crash
phone net
• NASOC / OSC will ensure CDO, ODO, Bus and
Stairs are recalled
• All Orbiter Convoy teams form at ESSO with
ODO/OSC
• Same game plan is executed that we would use
today
