Our project is to build and contribute improvements to an existing open source ground station design. This project called SatNOGS (Satellite Networked Open Ground Station) was started a year ago by the Libre Space Foundation in Athens, Greece to address the problem of data downlink from Low Earth Orbiting Satellites. We are most interested in improving the ease of construction of the ground station to enable more people to deploy ground stations.
