The ground station is also a part of the DTUsat system. In keeping with the outreach goal, it will be publicly available when we begin to receive data from the satellite. It is built using commercial radio amateur products for simplicity and cost reasons. Apart from the radio and antennas, it consists of two computers, one for tracking the satellite and one for handling the data flow. Data from the satellite is decoded and stored in a database on the ground station, and all data and communications will be made publicly available after the commission phase ends.
