Controlling a satellite involves a complex process carried out by highly trained professionals and specialised facilities. Here's a simplified version of the process: 1. Ground Control Station: A ground station is necessary to control the satellite. It's equipped with large satellite dishes to send and receive signals from the satellite. 2. Training: Operators must have robust knowledge of the satellite systems, orbit dynamics, and the understanding of mission-specific requirements and operations. 3. Communication Links: Communication with the satellite is established via the ground station. The control commands are usually uploaded to a satellite while it's in contact with the station. 4. Software: The commands are created through specialized software, which helps operators manage and control satellites effectively. 5. Telemetry Data: Telemetry data helps operators monitor the health, status, and position of the satellite. 6. Planning: It's necessary to plan manoeuvres, system changes, and uploads for the satellite and have them reviewed and approved before performing them. Please note that satellite operation isn't typically something an individual can do without extensive training and the appropriate legal permissions. Unauthorized control over a satellite can be seen as illegal activity in many jurisdictions. If you're interested in this field, consider getting an education in aerospace engineering or a related discipline. There are also CubeSats (small, affordable satellites) used for education and amateur radio that could provide opportunities for hands-on learning.
