Earth and space observation
Earth observation satellites are used for everything from weather reporting to pollution monitoring. Specific issues for communicating with these type of satellites include:
- High speed communication links,
- Ground based satellite tracking antenna with high speed motorization tracking for low orbit satellites,
- Keyhole issue.
InterTronic Solutions supplies ground based antenna systems used to communicate with these spacecraft for both data downlinks and TT&C.
Antennas are traditionally used singly for these applications however, with the InterTronic Solutions’ array capable antenna systems, arrays of our smaller aperture systems have significant advantages over single much larger systems.
Our arraying partner is Specialized Arrays Inc.
The G/T of antennas for space observation applications with marginal communication link conditions can be drastically improved by using ultra low noise amplifier systems.
