  • New all-time high for KSAT | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    record In July 2011 the scheduled support for satellite support was 11 300 passes In addition support associated with background monitoring of meteorological data and collection of Earth observation like Modis type information is bringing the actual number of supports up to even higher numbers For reference the monthly number of passes was about 3000 in January 2008 an increase of 375 The support is provided from the KSAT network

  • KSAT and NASA in joint project to characterize the polar atmosphere for Ka-band transmissions. | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    from polar orbiting satellites is normally conducted using x band frequency range However as data volume grows it may be necessary to increase the bandwidth for data down link Increasing the frequency by moving from x band to Ka band is one measure To characterize the global atmosphere for Ka band reception NASA and KSAT has initiated a joint effort at the KSAT Svalbard Ground Station SvalSat NASA is deploying

  • Galileo takes its place on top of the world | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    Norwegian Space Centre in 1997 However since 2002 the station is owned and operated by Kongsberg Satellite Services KSAT Svalbard is one of the three Galileo ground stations to be hosted by Norway another is at the Norwegian Troll Antarctic base with a third one to be built on the island of Jan Mayen in the North Atlantic Those three stations are or will be built maintained and operated by KSAT employing their specialised knowledge of these harsh polar environments KSAT is the world s largest ground station supporting polar orbiting satellites The extensive KSAT network of ground stations has active contact with around 50 satellites about 10 800 times per month KSAT is therefore providing multi mission satellite support to satellite owners and operators as well as users of global satellite data services Galileo on the ground There is a lot more to Galileo than just satellites in space The worldwide ground based infrastructure ESA has put in place is essential to ensure the continued reliability of the Galileo signal s time and positioning information Satellite navigation relies on the user s receiver calculating the time and place in space that the signal was transmitted to an extremely high level of accuracy But onboard atomic clocks can still drift as can the orbits of the satellites themselves perturbed by gravitational influences and the slight but significant push of sunlight itself So ESA s network of ground stations continuously checks each satellite s clock for any drift as well as performing radio ranging on the satellites to identify any orbital perturbation If corrections are needed they can be embedded into the latest version of the Galileo signal that is transmitted up to the satellites to be rebroadcast The entire Galileo system amounts to one important ensemble of extremely accurate clocks
