Abstract

Most of student satellite missions are based on the design, construction and launch of a picosatellite (cubesat) including the design of the ground station (GS). Traditional GS are based on commercial elements and are designed to support only one mission. These stations access the mission data very inefficiently, as only contact the satellite during short visibility periods. In this paper, we present a novel GS concept based on software defined radio technology that can be integrated in a global network for satellite tracking. The station will be implemented by a group of students as a part of a space project under the supervision of a faculty coordinator. The design must fulfil the requirements of low cost, remote operation, and flexibility to operate in different frequency bands. The set-up of this mid-term educational space project to build an operational GS will hopefully motivate Telecommunication Engineering students to participate and gain real hands-on experience in an international space environment.
