Valpo-Sat: The Software and 3D Models for the SatNOGS Open-Sourced Satellite Ground Station
College of Engineering
This project attempts to utilize the open-sourced SatNOGS project in order to create and operate a satellite communications ground station at Valparaiso University, IN. SatNOGS is an open source ground station, optimized for modularity, and is built from readily available and affordable tools and resources. The long term goal of SatNOGS is to establish a world-wide network of operator-less ground stations.
As part of implementing the SatNOGS project at Valparaiso, Joshua Wawak is re-designing the 3D models for the mechanical components in order to optimize them for the northwest Indiana climate. Michael Good is assembling, programming, and maintaining the single board computers for the project software. Continuous updating is necessary to stay up to date with the ever-evolving SatNOGS design.
