This Thesis presents the design of a ground segment for the GranaSAT-I cubesat, a microsatellite in development process which will require of a system capable of receiving its telemetry and sending telecommands when it is launched. The project includes an analysis of all the physical phenomena and components involved in the transmission of the signal from an spacecraft in Low Earth Orbit to the station located in the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Granada. The deployment and testing processes were also carried out and are described in detail.
