The Space-based Telescope for the Actionable Refinement of Ephemeris (STARE) CubeSat will play an important role in contributing to this nations space situational awareness (SSA), perhaps one day becoming an integral part of the space surveillance network (SSN) to track orbital debris and satellites, both active and inactive. STARE is a pathfinder mission that is expected to show that CubeSat assets can improve the accuracy of space debris ephemeris data and help national assets avoid conjunction. However, STARE cannot do its job if it cannot communicate effectively with the ground architecture. Knowing the functionality of the on board radio is essential to knowing the capabilities and limitations of the spacecraft. STARE is designed to communicate with the Mobile CubeSat Command and Control (MC3) ground station at the Naval Postgraduate School for data collection and analysis. This thesis shows testing and results, analysis and simulation of the STARE radio and the MC3 ground stations.
