Ground Station (TinyGS) Workshops

Build a ground station capable of receiving telemetry from currently 14+ active satellites.
Become a valuable member of a network with 1000+ ground stations.
Based on the TinyGS ground station solution, you will build and “program” a stand-alone ground station. The software will auto-tune to a 70cm/±433MHz LoRa based satellite currently in a polar-orbit, allowing you to listen in everywhere on earth. You can borrow a kit in the workshop, or you can prebook your own kit (excluding the antenna) from here.
Prerequisite - Laptop (Windows or Mac) with working USB-A Port and WiFi access (only required for configuration), optional - smartphone (iOS/Android)
Should you wish to purchase a kit, you will receive 25% discount by using the code “CDW 2022” at checkout.

Programming & Prototyping Workshop:
This workshop is for you if you want to either do your own programming using any of the MaxIQ kits and/or if you want to prototype your own payload. We will use the starter kit to program against some of the sensors. A few developed prototypes will be demonstrated.
Should you wish to purchase a kit, you will receive 25% discount by using the code “CDW 2022” at checkout.
PrerequisiteKnowledge of C/C++ and/or Arduino. A laptop (Windows or Mac) with working USB-A Port and WiFi access.
