Full Ground Station Kit for VHF/UHF

41,500

With its small satellite communication ground stations ISIS offers a turnkey solution that is specifically designed for small satellites in Low Earth Orbit using UHF/VHF radio amateur frequencies, such as CubeSats for use in university environments, and can autonomously track selected satellites by using a steerable antenna system.
The ISIS ground station is derived from the proven set up of the ground station of Delft University of Technology, which has been successfully used to provide support during small satellite missions and is the designated command ground station for the Delfi-C3 satellite mission. This complete kit includes all hardware and software to get up-and-running quickly.
