Satellite Tracking, Telemetry and Control Services

The 21-M Space Tracking Antenna at MSU is a powerful research tool for students, but it also provides vital satellite tracking, telemetry and control services to other universities, private aerospace clients and government agencies. The full-motion, 21-meter parabolic dish antenna system serves as an Earth station for satellite mission support and also acts as a test bed for advanced radio frequency systems. The system is capable of tracking fast-moving, low-transmitting power small satellites in low Earth orbit as well as satellites at geostationary, lunar and potentially Earth-Sun Lagrangian orbits.
