LinkStar-TRK is the ONLY space certified radio system providing accurate tracking of your satellite from almost anywhere in LEO! LinkStar-TRK will send messages within 15 seconds of activation. It will broadcast your speed and position to within 1 meter in as little as 4 minutes, and provide an accurate two line element (TLE) in under 30 minutes - from almost anywhere in LEO. No more hunting for your cubesat for 2-3 weeks!
The LinkStar-TRK uses our new LinkStar-STX3-PC104 which seamlessly fits in a cubesat and supports the cubesat bus. Plug it into your stack and you are good to go immediately!
