Senior Project - RGS


Remote Ground System Support for Satellite Missions

Senior Project: 2003-2004
Eugene Bazyl, Jonathan Bowman, Christian Cunningham, Joshua McGeehon and Justin Meyer

The Remote Ground Station (RGS) is part of a Ground Station Network (GSN) supporting multiple satellite missions produced by the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (CSGC). The system will be deployable over the web and will allow for remote users to participate in and be a part of a larger ground communication network supporting one or more satellites over multiple missions.

A client will provide remote users with the ability to receive transmitted data from satellites produced by CSGC, and transmit this data back to the home server located at the CSGC main facility in Boulder, Colorado. The satellite data will be received through the use of a ham radio that will be initialized and setup by the end users themselves. The data will be interpreted in real time through the use of dynamic libraries included with the application or downloaded from the web. Each library will support one of the satellites, thus allowing for easier future development and support. The client will provide a graphical user interface that will promote a rich and satisfying user experience for the end user.
