SatNOGS Project provides detailed open source hardware design to control a dual axis satellite tracker. This tracking system moves the Azimuth and Altitude which are also utilized by sun trackers and heliostats.

  • This design uses readily available components which are commonly found in reprap style 3D printers
  • Use of worm geared steppers is the most appropriate choice for driving heavy loads with the benefit of self-locking gears
  • Motion control through worm gears  occupy a lot less space compared to linear actuators or lead screw driven designs
