The Ground Control Station was constructed along with the launch of KITSAT-1 for the control and operation of satellites. Commands and programs are transmitted to the satellite while telemetric data and measurements from payloads are received at this facility. It also stores, processes and manages all received data, and distributes it to users that request access.
The KITSAT series and STSAT-1 operation missions have been successfully completed at this station. It is currently operating the ongoing STSAT-2C and STSAT-3 missions, successfully launched in 2013.
The KAIST Satellite Technology Research Center has a total of 4 antennas which are used for satellite tracking and communication.
