Ground Station and Ground Terminal Testing

Ground station and ground terminal testing

Ensure the best quality of service throughout the entire life time of your satellite and ground station asset.

Once a satellite is on its target orbit, several routines need to be performed. To ensure optimum performance of the entire chain of satellite communications, validating, monitoring and testing the performance of ground stations is of vital interest for the satellite operator. With the advent of large LEO constellations, the industry is also focusing on smaller user terminals in order to achieve optimum quality of service for end-user and satcom applications.
