Satellite teleports are permanent ground-based satellite uplink facilities. Teleports consist of several satellite dishes sited near a major terrestrial communications backbone, and they serve as the link between terrestrial communications infrastructure and in-orbit telecommunications satellites....

Ground stations are an essential but often overlooked segment of space infrastructure. Ground stations connect satellites to terrestrial networks and collect satellite information ranging from tracking and telemetry to imagery and scientific data. The stations also upload information to spacecraft,...

Launch vehicles, spacecraft, and other space platforms receive operational, logistical, and navigational instructions from ground stations. Individual ground stations are usually spread across a wide geographic, and sometimes international, expanse to maximize the reach of the network as it uploads...
