Abstract:
SeaSpace Corporation, of Poway, California, worked with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory under two SBIR contracts to reduce the cost of satellite ground tracking. The resulting hardware and software not only complement NASA's remote sensing capabilities but also benefit the greater research community, tracking low-Earth orbit satellites for remote sensing; science; communications; and telemetry, tracking, and command applications, providing true full hemispherical coverage. The company's ground-based receivers are now in continuous operation on all seven continents, with customers including aerospace and defense clients, the scientific community, national and local weather services, the research industry, and public safety organizations.
