Surrey Space Centre (SSC) received the ground station from Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) in 2008. It was the first of the VHF/UHF reception groundstations to be developed as part of the ESA GENSO Project (Global Educational Network for Satellite Operations) under Prof. Tanya Vladimirova. The station is now the primary VHF/UHF transmitting and receiving our missions. The SSC groundstation is used for undergraduate, postgraduate, and research projects using the equipment, computers and soldering stations. We offer any amateur satellite support where possible.
