SPACEFLIGHT EARTH OBSERVATION GROUND STATION

Spaceflight Earth Observation Ground Station in New Zealand

Spaceflight, a next-generation, integrated space services company wanted to expand its ground station network to New Zealand. Each of the company’s ground stations are sighted to minimize communications latency and data throughput while offering the most comprehensive global coverage. The company was looking for a reliable earth observation ground station solution, the Gaia-100 3.7m (12.1 feet) system suited their requirement perfectly.

Government Organization in Europe

A leading governmental integrator in Europe responsible for tracking and Earth Observation equipment in its country was looking for an Earth observation antenna solution to download data from satellites. The antenna system should work flawlessly under extreme environmental conditions in -40°c temperature and high wind load in operation mode. ORBITs Solution incorporated three antenna systems sized 5, 7 and 10 meters. The antenna systems were supplied for the remote sensing application.

ImageSat International – Remote sensing project in Africa

ImageSat International, a global provider of advanced, integrated, remote sensing based solutions; was looking for advanced satellite tracking antenna to download high resolution imagery from its EROS-A and EROS-B satellites. The antenna solution required to withstand challenging weather conditions of high temperature (40°c). The enclosed picture of ORBIT's 3.7m x-band remote sensing antenna is taken from the installation in Africa.

A Space Research Company – Remote sensing project in Americas

A Space research company in America was looking for an earth observation / remote sensing solution for tracking, transmitting and downloading data from LEO satellites. The solution had to be highly accurate and yet cost-effective compared to other earth observation solutions in the market. ORBIT provided a 3.7m Gaia-100 tracking antenna based on a high-gain, dual band S&X feed design, allowing bi-directional communication with the LEO satellites. The Gaia-100 was installed on the roof of company's building.
