ASF Satellite Tracking Antennas
The Alaska Satellite Facility operates four satellite tracking and communications antennas that are part of the Near Space Network (NSN), a global array of ground-based spacecraft-support facilities managed by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
ASF operates two facilities that provide ground-based communications and tracking support for polar orbiting satellites.
With four antennas, this is the only university-based satellite tracking ground station in the NASA Near Space Network. It is located on the Troth Yeddha’ campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Commercial satellite services located at a prime location outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. This ground support facility is ideally suited for providing reliable communications with polar-orbiting satellites.
