GS Details

The ground station provides a radio link to the satellite. It consists of two antenna towers with a two axis motor-head on each. One tower carries UHF and L-band antennas, the other tower carries a 3m parabolic dish antenna. The system is highly modular a can potentially be remote controlled. Hence a supplement ground station is planned to be placed at Arktisk Teknologi, Sisimiut.


The DTUsat GS consists of:

An UHF TX/RX unit designed for DTUsat-1 and used for tracking multiple other CubeSats

A S-band RX unit with a 3m dish and L-band TX Unit with a helical antenna.

Assembling the 3m dish.
