ATLAS Space Operations makes it easier for satellite companies to access space by negating the need to invest in and operate ground infrastructure around the world. With the new approach, ATLAS customers can focus on developing and launching new innovative satellites and payloads to collect information from sensors, cameras, radar systems, etc. With the Freedom ™ software platform, customers can use a common ground network anytime, anywhere.
With the newly implemented Gaia systems, ATLAS can expand its presence and service offering to an increasingly demanding market in which the speed, security and reliability of data acquisition is of crucial importance for the success of ATLAS customers. ATLAS Space Operations, coupled with Freedom ™, is transforming the way companies and governments collect and use Earth observation data to improve the daily lives of people around the world.
“We are excited to partner with Orbit to leverage their Gaia systems, which are a critical framework for supporting our Freedom ™ Network Services,” he said Mike Carey, CSO and co-founder of ATLAS. “We have several customers who are familiar with Orbit and have asked us to leverage Orbit’s capabilities on our network to ensure continued and reliable service delivery.”
“Orbit is very proud to help a customer like ATLAS expand their network of ground stations,” said Daniel Eshchar, CEO of Orbit. “We believe that the combination of the Gaia 100 product line is bundled with the Freedom ™ Software Platform from ATLAS.” will make a significant difference for the end customer. “
About earth observation in orbit and new space solutions
Orbit’s Gaia-100 family of earth observations and new space systems combines years of experience, an extensive installed base and lessons from the emerging New Space sector. Orbit is redesigning traditional ground stations to make them more compact and cost effective to meet the dynamic needs of its EO and constellation customers. The company’s Gaia 100 family includes low-cost, high-performance terrestrial terminals for proven and reliable connectivity to LEO / MEO satellites.
Orbit’s Gaia 100 family does not have a “keyhole” that allows for continuous tracking. It is a true 3-axis system – EL, Tilt and AZ – and an integrated, step-by-step Advanced Control Loop enables higher availability, reliability and superior performance. The Gaia-100 has multiple configurations (from L- to K-band) on a single platform, and the radome cover allows it to operate anytime, anywhere
