Introducing Our Ground Station Services
Audacy is simplifying access to satellites via a growing network of ground stations. Whether you operate an Earth imaging satellite or a lunar rover, our ground-based solution is ideal for handling rigorous demands for spectrum, data uplink and downlink speeds, and deep space capabilities beyond low Earth orbit.
Currently, Audacy owns and operates 3 ground stations - one in Napa Valley, California, and two other stations to commence commercial services in San Francisco, California, and Singapore, in 2019.
Upon the launch of our space-based data relay system in late 2020, we will be expanding our network of ground stations to provide robust ground architecture for our relay satellites in medium Earth orbit. Learn more about the Audacy Architecture.
Our gateways and operations centers are located right at the doorstep of high-availability internet backbone locations with superior data infrastructure. Network users can receive their data at any internet-enabled location in the world or take delivery with a customer-owned equipment rack directly within Audacy’s operations center for maximum security hardening.
With our prepaid data plan, purchase only the amount of data (Gb) you need. Reserve capacity ahead of your missions for your data-intensive requirements.
BE AN EARLY ADOPTER
Our ground stations will join our space-based data relay network when it launches in late 2020. Gain access now to ensure a seamless transition.
eNTER DEEP SPACE
Built to operate in Ka-band and designed to accommodate up to Q- and V-band, our ground stations can detect and track spacecraft from low Earth orbit to the Moon.
2.4 M ANTENNA
Located in Napa Valley, California, our 2.4 m antenna was built for Audacy Zero, our first demo mission that is live. Equipped with full motion tracking capabilities in Ka-band, it has successfully detected large satellites in geostationary orbit.
7 M ANTENNA
Coming soon in early 2019: Our 7 m antenna. Sensitive like a 9 m antenna yet fast enough to respond at a speed of 12 degrees per second.
The antenna operates in Ka-band with full motion tracking capabilities. Designed to accommodate frequencies of up to 50 GHz, it can expand its capabilities to serve V- and Q-band in the near future.
