The SatNOGS Website project aims to create a web interface for the SatNOGS, or Satellite Network Open Ground Stations, project. The intent of the ongoing project is to make the main SatNOGS project more accessible by creating a web-based software system that contains many of the necessary features needed to run a ground station, and do it in a way that is visually appealing and human-friendly, and to also provide an extension to the main client for control and information presentation needs. A large feature that the application will offer is displaying much of the information that the transmitter is receiving, such as where in the sky the satellite that is being observed is at, whether the ground station is currently on the network, whether it is able to receive information, and even more data on the satellite it is looking at, including possibly a picture and the raw data the satellite is transmitting. This work is being done in collaboration with the ECE Department at Valparaiso University, which is working on aspects of the physical and electronic components. This project, in addition to contributing to this international effort, also provides a laboratory for experiencing and learning the technology and processes for large-scale software system construction.
