28c3: Building a Distributed Satellite Ground Station Network - A Call To Arms

Andreas -horn- Hornig, hadez: Building a Distributed Satellite Ground Station Network - A Call To Arms
Hackers need satellites. Hackers need internet over satellites. Satellites require ground stations. Let's build them!

As proposed by Nick Farr et al at CCCamp11, we - the hacker community - are in desperate need for our own communication infrastructure. So here we are, answering the call for the Hacker Space Program with our proposal of a distributed satellite communications ground station network. An affordable way to bring satellite communications to a hackerspace near you. We're proposing a multi-step approach to work towards this goal by setting up a distributed network of ground stations which will ensure a 24/7 communication window - first tracking, then communicating with satellites. The current state of a proof of concept implementation will be presented.
