Simplify your search for ground stations with our new planning tool

Jul 31, 2019

At Infostellar, we know every satellite mission is different. Without aggregated, easily searchable information on ground stations, the pursuit of your ideal ground segment can look like a long process of information gathering and negotiations with ground station owners around the globe.

To address this, we’ve compiled technical specifications from ground station owners around the world into an online planner which enables you to identify suitable ground stations, just by entering your communications requirements.

As you start to approach the task of scoping your ground segment, negotiating prices and integrating with ground stations, our planning tool can guide and inform you through this process. And if you’d like to use stations you’ve found in the tool, simply connect to them through StellarStation’s unified contracting and integration process.
