Design of a Satellite Tracking Station for Remote Operation and Multi-User Observation

  title={Design of a Satellite Tracking Station for Remote Operation and Multi-User Observation},
  author={Mark Wilkinson and Charles Swenson},
With the advent of LEO constellations, the operation of multiple ground stations becomes an important factor in maintaining several satellites. [] Key Method The design of this ground station outlines software drivers for controlling hardware through a computer interface. A server daemon design is given that provides connections for multiple users. This server allows an internet connection to the hardware drivers. The design presented illustrates a daemon process running on the Sun Solaris 2 operating system…

SSC 01-VIIIa-4 A Virtual Ground Station Based on Distributed Components for Satellite Communications
The work presented in this paper aims at augmenting the accessibility to the services offered by LEO satellites by devised a concept of virtual ground station available over the Internet and developed a client satellite tracking software that uses the concept.
Automatic Satellite Dish Positioning for Line of Sight Communication using Bluetooth Technology
The design and development of a system which receives user specifications from an Android application viaBluetooth by either specifying the direction of orientation of the dish or selecting a satellite of interest is proposed.
