Abstract

This paper describes the objectives and characteristics of an low-cost, experimental ground station (EGS), which is developed within the frame of the small satellite project BIRD. The German Space Operations Center has teh main responsibility for BIRD operations, while data reception is done by the receiving station in Neustrelitz. The objective of the EGS is to investigate and demonstrate direct user reception of regional data from Earth observing satellites with a "low-cost" ground station, as well as to analyze autonomous activity capabilities and experimental tests for mission operations. The station is located in Berlin, on the top of the institute building.
