Abstract—The SatNOGS, or Satellite Network Open

Ground Stations, project promotes and supports free and

open space applications. It seeks to solve the problem

of connecting many satellite users/observers to many

ground station operators. Modern open software, web,

and hardware techniques are used in implementing the

Network, Database, Client, and Ground Station sub- projects. Modularity in all the systems promotes the

dual-use of ground stations by not interfering with local

operation while utilizing the great amount of time a

civilian, non-commercial ground station would otherwise

sit idle.
