Gaussteam Ground station in Rome for microsatellites space operations
GAUSS VPM23 Ground Station in Rome

G.A.U.S.S. Srl has its own fixed ground station in Rome (VPM23)  for satellite tracking and monitoring.

The characteristics of the ground station are:

  • Bidirectional L-Band (VHF and UHF)  – downlink and uplink- communications for TT&C, satellite tracking, monitoring and command. Analogic radio and TNCs or SDR frontends are used.
  • S-Band downlink for reception of scientific and broadband data from the satellite with a 1.5m dish antenna and SDR frontend.
  • The ground station is fully automated for controlling the satellites already launched (UniSat-5 and UniSat-6).
  • The ground station may be used on request to give support to recently launched satellites to monitor their status and, if needed, to send commands too.

G.A.U.S.S. Srl has also transportable radio equipment for making measurements of satellites in other regions (mostly in VHF/UHF Bands).

Ground station consultancy for L-Band and S-Band can also be provided.

G.A.U.S.S. Srl has gained an extensive knowledge on ground stations hardware and operations during these years.

We offer complete Ground Station Kits – tailored to your needs – and technical consultancy in order to install your own ground station.
