The ISRO web page Ground Segment says:
SRO Telemetry Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) will be providing support of the TTC ground stations, communications network between ground stations and control center, Control center including computers, storage, data network and control room facilities, and the support of Indian Space Science Data Center (ISSDC) for the mission. The ground segment systems form an integrated system supporting both launch phase, and orbital phase of the mission.
The launch vehicle is tracked during its flight from lift-off till spacecraft separation by a network of ground stations, which receive the telemetry data from the launch vehicle and transmit it in real time to the mission computer systems at Sriharikota, where it is processed.
The ground stations at Sriharikota, Port Blair, Brunei provide continuous tracking of the PSLV-C25 from liftoff till burnout of third stage of PSLV-C25.
Two ships carrying Ship Borne Terminals (SBT) are being deployed at suitable locations in the South Pacific Ocean, to support the tracking of the launch vehicle from PS4 ignition till spacecraft separation.
After satellite separation from the launch vehicle, the Spacecraft operations are controlled from the Spacecraft Control Centre in Bangalore.
To ensure the required coverage for carrying out the mission operations, the ground stations of ISTRAC at Bangalore, Mauritius, Brunei, and Biak are being supplemented by Alcantara and Cuiaba TTC stations of INPE, Brazil, Hartebeestoek TTC station of SANSA and the DSN network of JPL, NASA.
ISTRAC, ISSDC, INPE, SANSA, DSN... I only recognize DSN, and probably ESA has a host of tracking stations as well.
Question: Is there a source, or a few sources, that together will describe all of the "main" ground stations used for telemetry, tracking of transmissions (not radar) and communications with deep space missions from launch to transit to destination? Trying to list every site here would be huge and non SE-compliant. Instead, let's identify a few sources which together provide a handle on what will likely turn out to be several dozens of sites.
Once again, please ignore radar tracking. I'm only asking about stations that receive tones, data, telemetry, returned coherent signals etc. from the spacecraft.
note: From time to time radio telescopes are used as well. These do not need to be counted here, but anecdotal examples include Green Bank, Arecibo, and Giant Metrewave Telescope:
- Was the time of Schiaparelli's landing chosen specifically so the Giant Meter Wave Radiotelescope could listen?
- How have/how will Indian ground stations be used for comms or tracking of deep space spacecraft?
- Why was the 100m Green Bank dish needed together with DSN's 70m Goldstone dish to detect Chandrayaan-1 in lunar orbit?
