3 Todays networks are evil.
4 They are based on old technology. Why don t we have fast connections everywhere?
5 They are based on old business models. Why do we have to pay by usage?
6 Basically, they are closed proprietary old-fashioned insecure
7 But things are changing, for the better.
8 All power has to be with the community.
9 All power has to be with the Science deserves a fair share. Users and providers have to be on the same level. Everyone shall benefit. We need distributed networks. community.
10 There s a lot of well established distributed networks.
11 There s a lot of well established IRC Skype (it s evil, but well established and distributed anyway) TOR BOINC and Peer 2 Peer Networks like Bittorrent, Bitcoin Freifunk / OLSR distributed networks.
12 Hackers want world domination.
13 This is the information age.
14 Therefore world domination is achieved by sharing information and making fast, cheap, secure, reliable network connections accesible.
15 You can join easily. Today.
16 It starts with a simple, small device
17 Building a Distributed Satellite Ground Station Network A Call @rel0c8 hackerspace global grid / constellation 28c so hf, you'll shit bricks
18 CCCamp11 Nick Farr et al: Space! We haz a needs! [h7]
19 Meanwhile on an express train to Berlin Three hackers: We haz a brainfart! [h0]
20 The Goal Understand Build Own Open Source everything
21 Short Term Tasks Receive Decode Record & store
22 What we want/need to know Satellite communication protocols Antenna and HF design Analogue and digital filters Electronic design Embedded hard- and software Mathematics and cryptography
23 Where do we get started? Read Jeff Wofford's article "A programmer's greatest enemy" [h2] Seriously. Break tasks down into very small sub-tasks Knowledge? Purely optional. I can say that from first hand experience because I didn't know anything about HF, antennas or radio communications
24 A ground station for... what? Everything! "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau" sounds so much better than..."allround device" Of course that won't work Instead: build many small things and combine them to something bigger! Works well for *NIX and Power Rangers
25 What's the most basic thing we need? Timing & Synchronization No point in measuring stuff in a distributed environment if you do not know the time accurately
26 Timing - What we want (1) High accuracy Ideally something far better than a microsecond Some kind of easy to use interface Need high accuracy timing? Just plug it in! Interchangeability & exchangability Better timing source? No problem!
27 Timing - What we want (2) Bigger & better More than one timing source? Would be nice!
28 Okay, a time source it is What do we have? NTP DCF77 GPS
29 NTP Meh, too simple Requires permanent internet connection Not very accurate either
30 DCF77 Pros At first glance very simple (59 bits per minute) Cons Only works in (central) Europe Antenna should be aligned with Frankfurt/Main At second glance: we've found receivers often to be very delicate to touching, people being close by, people being too far away, low flying ponies, your longcat
31 GPS (1) Pros There's existing hardware to do it. You can receive it almost everywhere It also tells you where you are Super accurate (PPS pulse) and super effective
32 GPS (2) Cons Not independent from current earth politics Could be more accurate if current earth politics allowed for it to be So HF, you shit bricks
33 GPS: Zero to hero in 10 seconds flat
34 GPS: Zero to hero in 10 seconds flat Arduino Mega 2560 [h4] 4 UARTs (oh boy) Blogcred^W community or something More pins than you can shake a stick at Adafruit GPS shield w/ EM-406 module [h5] Because we've had that already (and it works!)
35 Accurate time? There's a pulse for that!
36 Accurate time? There's a pulse for that! PPS / Pulse Per Second Much more accurate than what you get from reading NMEA over a serial connection Much more you say? Do tell more!
37 GPS Timing Accuracy
38 GPS Timing Accuracy +/- 200ns not too shabby I d say But wait, there s more! 16 Mhz clock driving the uc. We could interpolate! This is currently work in progress Caveat We ve measured relative accuracy of two receivers next to each other
39 Defining a timing module Accurate time source Higher frequency clock to increase resolution Interface via I2C or interrupt + $something Common interface with other modules Different time sources can be easily adopted
40 Defining a positioning module Accurate position source Fixed stations can average position readings over time Different sources could be GPS / GLONASS Hard coded because you know where you are Galileo, which was switched on a few days ago [h8] Again, a well defined module interface
42 What should be actually measured? Satellites? Too complicated at this point Airplanes? Challenge accepted!
43 ADS-B Pros Includes planes call sign, GPS time, and position! Gives us ground truth for verifying calculations and accuracy Cons Signal sent at 1090 MHz This is SHF (Scheiß hohe Frequenz) SHF is nasty (which makes it awesome)
44 Dear HAMs... Why you so obscure? You love doing awesome hacking, so do we Yet a lot of documentation on the net is crap :( We've probably just picked the wrong HAM Anyway, here's some feedback ;)
45 Building an Antenna for ADS-B J-Pole [h9] Slim-Jim [h9,h6]
46 Building a J-Pole: Wrong A = ~22 cm B = ~6.5 cm C = ~1cm D = 4 turn balun How to tune: for each two nibbles taken away from A, take one nibble away from B
47 Building a J-Pole: Correct A = 3/4 λ B = 1/4 λ C = adjust to 50 Ω wave impedance between solder joints D = 4 turn balun to keep coax line from becoming part of the radiator How to tune: nibble away bits on both arms while maintaining the (3/4 λ) / (1/4 λ) ratio
48 So, what should this tell us? Don't document what you did. Document why and how you did it! This is of course not an HAM issue (we just pick the wrong ones). There's plenty of hackers documenting their projects similarly. Okay, let's say almost all documentation of almost everyone just sucks ;) Documentation is work. Documentation will let us learn from each other, furthering everyones goals.
49 Building a Slim-Jim A = overall length B1 = 1/2 λ B2 = 1/4 λ B3 = A-B1-B2 C = adjust to 50 Ω wave impedance between solder joints D = 4 turn balun to keep coax line from becoming part of the radiator
50 First trials and failures TV Tuners? Works, if you have the right one that actually has a hardware bug you can use Sucks hard Documentation sucks harder
51 Buy shit, get it done miniadsb receiver [h3] Pure SMT awesomeness Simply works!
53 Filtering and Amplifying the signal What we've learned so far: HF sucks hard, SHF sucks harder We get about 0.1 to 0.3 Volts from our receiver We need more => build a preamp and filters Through sucky documentation we now have a set of resonant circuits which are not filters which is kind of bad...
54 Decoding and Measurement ADSB is using Manchester coding (transmitting the clock signal together with the AM modulated signal) Oh #^$% it's the 28th and I haven't made any slides yet!
55 What we ll get along the way (1) Even if we're not yet talking to satellites, we get a lot out of this project early on High accuracy timing of $measurements Weather Airplanes Radiation Earthquakes...
56 What we ll get along the way (2) GPS receiving ground stations with known actual location AGPS for the masses! Know the GPS position of known-position locations to increase GPS accuracy Distributed time sources
57 Next up (1) Get both ADSB receivers working Set up two ground stations 100km apart Measure signals Calculate numbers
58 Next up (2) Become crazy from thinking about high frequency stuff all the time If it ain't working, try harder If it is working, build more! There will be dragons.
59 Collateral Damage (1) Contacts in the space & satellite community, both academic and commercial. Three HF antennas built Two ADS-B receivers Filters!... So many filters! Two Arduino/GPS setups
60 Collateral Damage (2) Got a GPS module made specifically for timing off ebay One hacker off to the far away land of FPGA design Lost a hacker to a serious case of horology [h1] Tons of fun! Too much to do for just us
62 How to contribute Write code Provide computational power Build hardware Share expertise Set up a ground station!
63 And now a word from someone who actually has an application for all this! loading Constellation...
64 What the Frak are we doing? Building a real space application Telemetry and Tracking Small Satellite Project "Flying Laptop" University of Stuttgart[c1-3] and more [cp1] Flying Laptop [c1-3][cp1] Determine Orbital (Keplerian) Elements Amateur Radio Community External tracking and positioning!

65 Why? Why not? Positioning: Relatively fast positioning after orbit injection Permanent and global tracking Independent service [cp3] satellite com-link
66 Why? Why not? Communication: receiving sat-data in data-dump mode in between black regions of main GS nodes possibility to command satellites [cp4] data-dump mode Almost nothing is more expensive than data-rates in $pace!
