For the first time in Europe, the new ATV Control Centre, in Toulouse, handles a man-rated automatic mission towards the ISS. For the Jules Verne ATV mission scheduled early next year, the ATV-CC will act as the lead mission control centre in charge of man-rated operations for the ATV while the Mission Control Centres in Moscow and in Houston supported and authorized the rendezvous to the ISS in real time. The 30-strong control room team in Toulouse is in charge of operating and sending the GO commands to the automated spacecraft.
