21 M SPACE TRACKING ANTENNA
The Space Science Center at Morehead State University has developed a full motion 21-meter class antenna system which is engaged in a rigorous research program in radio astronomy and also serves as an Earth station for satellite mission support as well as a test bed for advanced radio frequency (RF) systems. The instrument is a unique educational tool which provides an active laboratory for students to have hands-on learning experiences with the intricacies of satellite telecommunications and radio astronomy. The 21 M supports undergraduate research in astrophysics, satellite telecommunications, RF and electrical engineering and software development. The 21 Meter antenna system became operational in 2006 and currently engaged in radio astronomy research. The 21 M antenna also serves as the primary Earth station for the KySat series of satellites.
