The Goddard Simulation Teams played a vital role in helping the tracking stations to prepare for missions. Specially equipped Super Constellations carried equipment and radio transmitters and transponders to simulate an Apollo spacecraft for the tracking station. See Preparing for Apollo for some of the background.

The Goddard Sim teams were frequent visitors to the skies over Honeysuckle.
