The Alén Space Ground Station Kit (GS-Kit) is a cost-effective solution that includes all the elements needed to set up a gateway to communicate with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites.
The GS-Kit provides customers with all the necessary elements to install a tracking station for small satellites: structure, antennas, cables, azimuth and elevation rotors, GS control software and Alén Space's SDR rack, a rackable dual Software Defined Radio compatible with GNU Radio, providing flexibility for different missions. It can support simultaneously three different bands: VHF, UHF and S-band.
The GS-Kit is delivered in a box ready to be installed by the user, following the installation manual provided. The kit also includes an operations manual. The ease of assembly makes site survey, training and installation assistance by Alén Space's technicians only needed upon request. The company can provide remote installation support.
