Terrassa Ground Station is a student project group formed by EUROAVIA Terrassa local board in 2008, which aims to create a Ground Station satellite receiver based in a low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite tracker.
Since 2008, the project has changed its initial goal, and opens to a more functional and useful solution for student projects and market interests. The fundamental aim of this student group is giving the opportunity for students to enter a spacefield project and prove teamwork and management skills in order to run forward a satellite tracker ground station.
After building a VHF and UHF ground station for LEO satellites, which is currently unactive due to an antenna positioning failure, the project has moved to a new reciver station in order to expand its possibilities. This effort consists of installing a high precision GPS receiever, which would be connected to a network of world wide GPS recievers assisting a software development program from GMV enterprise.
Team members have changed quite every academic year, joining new members -especially young students in early courses- in order to give continuity to the project. By now, the number of former students that have enrolled TGS are 12.
Current active members are six,
