Israel: ORBIT Communication Systems has launched a new ground station solution for tracking Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites in Earth observation and remote sensing applications. It is known as the Gaia series.
The new ground station solution supports a range of antenna sizes. It has a small footprint and therefore it can be easily located on building roofs, rig platforms or in an open field. It is aimed at benefiting Value Added Service (VAS) providers, Oil and Gas exploration companies, ocean and climate monitoring experts, and disaster control specialists. “With our new Gaia family, ORBIT addresses a void in the market, and opens the door to new earth observation markets which could not afford to purchase legacy ground stations due to their size and cost,” said Ofer Greenberger, CEO of ORBIT Communication Systems.
