The World's first private Deep Space Communications Network - Software Cornwall

Goonhilly is developing the capability to support the exploration of Lunar and Deep Space for institutions and private enterprise.

Modifying our 32 m and 30 m antennas to be compatible with NASA & ESA’s Deep Space Network allows a cost-effective access to communications and ranging services to beyond GEO (geostationary equatorial orbit) spacecraft. The flexible design to these large antennas allows customer’s proprietary systems to also be supported.

Goonhilly will be leading the world’s first commercial deep space network service to provide necessary additional capacity over and above existing NASA and ESA deep space networks.

As a first step we are upgrading our 32 m Goonhilly 6 antenna. If your company wants to get involved in this part of the project, please register your interest here.
