Earth Observation Ground Stations

Gaia™ 100

By combining years of experience, an extensive installed base and lessons learned from the emerging New Space sector, Orbit is rethinking traditional ground stations – making them more compact and cost-effective – to address the dynamic needs of its EO and constellation customers. The company’s Gaia 100 family comprises cost-effective, high-performance terrestrial terminals for proven and reliable connectivity with LEO/MEO satellites.

  • No “key hole”, for continuous tracking
  • Real 3-axis system – EL, Tilt and AZ – for greater availability and reliability
  • Heavy duty by design for multi mission operation
  • Cloud connectivity ready
  • Built-in, step-track-based Advanced Control Loop, for superior performance
  • Innovative GaiaLink™ software, for ease of integration and operation
  • Radome covered, for anytime/anywhere operation
  • Short lead time
  • Multiple configurations (from L- to K-band) in a single platform
  • Mature product with multiple installations around the globe
