ISRAEL. Orbit Communication Systems Ltd., a global provider of compact ground stations and tracking aeronautical and maritime terminals, announced a new order for a multi-band Gaia 5.5 m ground station.

The high-gain dual S/X-band system will be installed in 2020 and is designed to bring additional capabilities to the existing Gaia-based ground network for a leading satellite imagery service provider.

The new 5.5m multi-band ground station shares the same modular architecture, intuitive tools, and ease of operation as the popular 2.4m, 3.7m, and 4.5m Gaia series. Gaia terminals can be configured for L-band through the full Ka-band, as well as for multi band operation, with a choice of proven RF power units.

According to the company, the lightweight, small-footprint design allows installation on a range of locations and structures, while a robust protective radome ensures continuous operation in severe environments.
