Satellite Systems: We extend the reach of networks beyond terrestrial connections with our satellite communication systems. The success of Ka-band satellite Internet in the U.S. and Europe is leading to further expansion in global markets. We support more Ka-band satellite capacity than anyone else and continue to push the state-of-the-art in network performance, applications, and economics. We also build network systems for efficient satellite data backhaul and cellular network extension.

Antenna Systems and Gateways: Completing the connection from satellite to the ground requires tying the satellite network into the terrestrial grid. We engineer and manufacture the large antenna systems that accomplish that task. Applications include digital HD television, satellite imaging, military communications, broadband networks, telemetry, satellite tracking, and teleports. We also design and produce small antennas for mobile and transportable satellite communications.

Consumer Services: We’re transforming satellite broadband with our high-capacity satellite system. Service providers in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia have selected our systems to provide faster speeds and quicker response than ever thought possible for internet over satellite. Speed that is 10 times faster than previous satellite internet service. Our high-capacity system offers the economics, ability to serve mass markets, and the consumer experience that meets today’s demands for high-bandwidth online media and content.
