As our contribution to the Radio Enthusiast and CubeSat community, PEKASAT SE decided to join and support project SatNOGS - world wide open source project for monitoring satellite communications.
This project is still updating and enhancing its functions under the auspices of Libre Space Foundation, which shares the vision of open-source technologies in space with an open international community of researchers, industry and individuals.
SatNOGS is a global network of ground stations which is used by many radio enthusiastic. Nowadays is to the SatNOGS network is connected more than 300 ground stations and these have delivered over 2 million space observations from more than 400 satellites. Received data and the results of the observations are distributed freely.
Our Ground Station “Komorina” consists of powerful transceiver from Ettus Research, manufacturer of high-performance SDR/USRP for various RF applications. High performance circular polarized antenna from M2 Antenna Systems guarantees the best signal reception for satellite work. Also, quality Low-noise amplifiers from Mini-Circuits are used for even better results. Antenna movement across the sky is ensured by rotator Yaesu G-5500DC.
