Satellite Tracking Antennas

Safran Data Systems Inc. Satellite Tracking Ground Stations are recognized, worldwide, as reference solutions for Earth Observation requirements. They are the most advanced and reliable solutions for performing satellite operations.

LEGION

LEGION, a all-in-one S/X/KA Tri-Band Antenna

The LEGION 400 addresses new space challenges of more connectivity, faster delivery, overall better value & flexibility. The LEGION 400 antenna system meets both versatility required by Earth Observation satellite tracking antennas and the large volume requirements of Communication Satellite Constellations. The LEGION 400 makes this possible with its unique patented tri-band S/X/Ka concentric feed combined with a lean & ultra accurate pedestal. The LEGION 400 is also capable of supporting LEOP & Launch Vehicles by employing a state-of-the-art S-band Single Channel Monopulse autotrack feed. With the LEGION 400, Safran Data Systems Inc. offers its customers complete flexibility in building up a scalable ground segment, with - a single vendor solution for the complete system, including antenna, radome, RF, baseband, station Monitoring & Control and scheduler.

VISION

VISION, a Turnkey S/X/Ka medium-size antennas for Earth Observation

The VISION is the ultimate Satellite Tracking antennas designed by Safran Data Systems, Inc. for Earth Observation. It is proposed either as a commodity or as a turnkey solution to support any Remote Sensing satellite. As with all Safran Data Systems Inc. antennas, the VISION benefits from the unique S/X/Ka concentric patented feed offering a unique asset for Continuity of Operations satellite generation. It is offered in 3 versions, from 16.4, 19.7, to 23 ft (under radome) to better serve users needs of G/T & EIRP no matter the environmental constraints. The VISION antenna architecture is based on RF over fiber converters for any configuration to optimize performance and simplify antenna installation. The VISION antenna is also designed to comply with demanding Ka-band, with a specific focus on pointing accuracy. The Ka-band operations is the largest Ka-band antenna available on the market complying with Program Track operations at 26 GHz.

IRIS

IRIS, a Mobile Satellite Tracking Antenna

The IRIS-240 is Safran Data Systems, Inc.’ new generation of transportable antenna systems. Stored in simple man-portable transport cases, the IRIS-240 uses standard shipping methods and sets up in the field in less than 2 hours ready to support satellites. The IRIS-240 relies on a proven pedestal design and a dual band concentric feed to ensure the best pointing accuracy and antenna performance. Built from standard (LRU) parts, the IRIS-240 is easily maintained and serviced in the field to ensure maximum availability for all satellite missions. Combined with the SATCORE combo box (Command/Control modem & high rate receiver) and the Maestro Monitoring & Control software makes the IRIS-240 aall-in-one transportable satellite tracking system.
