Sky Hub is an observational science platform created and developed by the open Sky Hub community to track UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena). It consists of a global network of Trackers designed to record and log data from UAP events occurring within their vicinity. Our goal is to provide a system which can reliably gather data that can help further our understanding of this enigmatic phenomenon. Join us by building and running your own UAP Tracker from any location that you choose!
Sky Hub is built on a free and open-source software development toolkit that provides a sensor platform with machine learning capabilities. It utilizes the cost-effective and readily available NVidia Jetson computing platforms (i.e. Nano, Xavier), IP cameras, and a range of commercially available sensors. The current System diagram shows an outline of the component parts.
Sky Hub's source code is licensed for public use under the MIT License free of charge, and Sky Hub's database is licensed under the Creative Commons License BY-NC-SA. That is the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike creative Commons Licence which allows anyone to remix, adapt, and build upon Sky Hub's work non-commercially, as long as they credit Sky Hub and license their new creations under the identical terms for others to use.
Sky Hub's datasets are open to anyone and we endorse researchers worldwide to use Sky Hub's raw data for global UAP research. Sky Hub's Trackers will send data to the Sky Hub Cloud when they capture an anomalous event. Data captured will come in various formats including video, telemetry, environmental, magnetic, and more.
There are many ways which you can contribute to this exciting project, including building and adding your own tracker to the network, supporting hardware and software development efforts, providing input to science, or just by spreading the word on social media. See the Supporting Sky Hub page for more details.
You can also donate through PayPal or Patreon. If you are a developer looking to assist, our software repositories are accessible through Gitlab and Docker.

If you'd prefer, you can make a regular payment using PayPal, or a one time donation. Every dollar helps!
Head over to our GitLab project page. Or join us in the live chat on the developer channel if you have any immediate questions.
These pages will help you get started with understanding Sky Hub and getting your own Tracker up and running. Please join us in the live chat if you have any questions.
Once you have the hardware to build your Hub, you can use these guides for building and deploying your system.
The development of Sky Hub (i.e. hardware / sensor evaluation etc) is informed by our Science Advisory Board.
Sky Hub is expandable and you can add additional sensors for capturing a wider range of data from anomalous events.
