To set-up a satellite network hub or adding ground stations in a teleport, for media distribution, one of the critical steps is to define and optimize accurately the sizing and the architecture for the main hub station including the Antenna system and the RF equipment.
METRACOM, as a leader in the satcom system integration propose its skilled resources and its long experience with engineering, system integration, sub-system tests, logistic, installation and on-operation services for any kind of earth station everywhere in the world.
Strongly experimented with Ka Band, we deployed ground stations in all frequency bands: S,C,X,Ku,Ka, Q/V and also extended bands.
Our system engineers study and recommend convenient station architecture taking into account the environmental criteria’s. They validate the sizing of the antenna and RF equipment based on the link-budget computations.
Our ground stations are delivered with the complete system documentation including installation recommendations and test reports.
Most of our stations are provided with Monitoring and Control tools to simplify the operation.
Our experience in the ground station area allows us to propose solutions for antenna refurbishing or upgrade with new feed adaptation, replacement of tracking system and/or RF chain in order to re-assign the station to new services or new satellite.
For teleport reorganization, We also address ground station relocation starting by a survey of the existing system to establish the budget and the feasibility.
