The Ground Segment facility at
Goonhilly in Cornwall has an operational S and X band tracking
dish antenna, an Ultra High Frequency (UHF) / Very High Frequency
(VHF) system, and a multi-mission capable facility that is dynamically
reconfigurable on a pass-by-pass basis.
This facility provides users
with a ‘bring-your-own solution’, where third party equipment can be
installed. It offers a high level of connectivity, and data can be
transmitted to the Catapult’s facilities in Harwell. We aim to allow
customers to use this capability at a low cost-per-pass basis.
