multiple ground systems satellite antennas

The link from earth to sky

Along with the spacecraft in orbit and the user terminal, satellite communications networks require a ground component to serve as the intermediary between the satellite system and the internet.

We’ve changed the traditional model of large, infrastructure-intensive ground stations a great deal with our newest satellite, ViaSat-2. While drastically reducing the size and cost of each ground station, we also increased the number and improved the performance. Our upcoming ViaSat-3 constellation will feature even more improvements and innovation.
