Sky Hub is global network of UAP Trackers that you build and run from any location that you choose. It's built on a free & open-source software development toolkit that provides a sensor platform with machine learning capabilities using NVIDIA Deepstream.
It can be used with cost-effective and readily available NVidia Jetson computing platforms, IP cameras, and commercially available sensors. Have a look at the types of Sensor Data the platform can capture.

Sky Hub is a citizen science project created and developed by the open Sky Hub community. Anyone can join the community by visiting the community chat room.
Sky Hub's chat room is located at https://chat.skyhub.org. The community chat is divided into topics for discussion including:
Sky Hub's datasets are open to anyone.
We endorse researchers worldwide to use Sky Hub's raw data for global UAP research.
Visit the Sensor Data page for details on what the tracker sensors can capture.
We guide you in the process of developing your own Sky Hub tracker, starting with a minimum setup.
You can enhance your system with sensors, PTZ cameras (Pan Tilt Zoom) and latest hardware over time.
You now have to make some decisions depending on your budget, skills or invested time.
So, let's start.
Sky Hub utilizes off the shelf hardware purpose selected for the tracker deployments. The currently supported hardware list is not final, and will be expanded as support is added by the developers, particularly supported sensors.
Visit the Hardware Overview page for more details about the devices that comprise a Sky Hub tracker deployment.
Before You Begin
Sky Hub is developed for the official Nvidia Ubuntu 18.04 Jetson image. If you haven't already done so, start with writing the Jetson Nano Developer Kit SD Card Image to your SD Card.
Class 10 SD Card recommended for best performance.
The official image requires a minimum 16GB of storage.
It's recommended to use a 32GB for room for future data.
Follow the directions located at:
Your Jetson must be connected to the internet to download the Sky Hub software!
The development team has simplified the Sky Hub software installation making the following two methods available. Open a shell prompt or ssh into your Jetson and run one of the following installation methods:
Single line installation
sudo wget -O - https://gitlab.com/skyhuborg/get-started/-/raw/master/deploy/install | sudo bash
git clone https://gitlab.com/skyhuborg/get-started.git
Once the Sky Hub installation has completed you may have some depricated libraries remaining. Remove unused libraries with:
sudo apt-get -autoremove
Updating To The Latest Version
When Sky Hub Tracker updates are published, you can update your docker by reconnecting to your Jetson via ssh and issuing the following commands:
As we learn of suitable off the shelf enclosures that might work well for Sky Hub, we'll add them here.
SkyHub.org does not manufacture/re-sell/sell enclosures or hardware at this time. This is a DIY build!
That being said, if you need help sourcing parts, help with 3D printing, etc. feel free to join the fabrication chat.
Visit the Enclosure page for details on building a tracker enclosure.
