Motivation: To help facilitate the operations of manned orbital spacecraft and increase communication and telemetry coverage. The distributed nature of hackerspaces make them good candidates to increase the opportunities of ground-station contact with orbiting spacecraft.
- Approach hackerspaces that meet minimum requirements to help Mach 30
- Compile an instructions kit and directions for setting up a remote ground tracking station
- “Employ” thier help with the tracking and communications for orbital operations.
Needs: sky visibility, roadio communication, spacecraft telemetry tracking
