DIY Satellite Ground Station and Network


We love satellites! And there are thousands of them up there. SatNOGS provides a scalable and modular platform to communicate with them.

Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites are our priority, and for a good reason. Hundreds of interesting projects worth of tracking and listening are happening in LEO and SatNOGS provides a robust platform for doing so.

We support VHF and UHF bands for reception with our default configuration, which is easily extendable for transmission and other bands too.


Sticking to modular architecture based on network communications we ensure remote access and interchangeable design meeting all possible needs.

We designed and created a global management interface (SatNOGS Network) to facilitate multiple ground station operations remotely. An observer is able to take advantage of the full network of SatNOGS ground stations around the world.


True to our values, we fuel our passion with Open Source practices in both software and hardware. Help us by contributing to the project, making it better one commit at the time.

    We are proud to have had an influence on their SatNOGS project, which is an open source ground station and network, optimized for modularity, and built using affordable tools and resources. Essentially, SatNOGS provides a scalable and modular platform to communicate with satellites, accessible to anyone.

    The innovative factor about these ground station antennas will be that they are built entirely from common products. No space-age technology will be required to communicate with the satellites that are floating through the cosmos.

    the system should allow much more comprehensive monitoring of satellite signals than anybody working in isolation could manage

    From the description above we’re sure you agree that this has the potential to be much more than a project between a few friends. This is a movement.
