AbstractIn space launch applications, a telemetry ground station is designed to ensure launch vehicle traceability and so the flight safety. In this study, the characterization of telemetry ground stations to be used for a space launch operation is explained with applied studies, flight characteristics of vehicle, and international practices. Present study explains step-by-step development process of a telemetry ground station for a space launch mission. Study is limited on the physical layer. At least two independent position information sources are required to ensure flight safety, so the network between telemetry ground stations and localization systems is needed. As a result, the characteristics of the telemetry ground station are determined to be used for a low earth orbit space launch mission considering mission objective, requirements and constraints.
