Tracking for Low and Medium Earth Orbit Satellites

We host 2 fully agile, remotely controllable X/S Band LEO/MEO antennas at Goonhilly and have planning permission for further expansion to support this growing market.

Goonhilly is an ideal site to host LEO/MEO (low/medium Earth orbit) constellation tracking antennas. We have the space available on a secure, well-connected site to provide horizon-to-horizon views with almost no blocking. In addition, we have dual and diverse fibre connectivity, 24/7 engineering cover and resilient power to provide the highest levels of support.

Due to its geographical position, Goonhilly is particularly well suited to support ISS based missions and one antenna is equipped to provide video downlink feeds from the International Space Station using the ARISS DVB system.

We can provide a range of services to support this market, ranging from antenna build and hosting for customers with the provision of engineering support, connectivity and power through to rental for individual orbits or any combination of satellite pass schedules.

  • Tracking MEO contellations

    Goonhilly is the perfect location for tracking Medium Earth Orbit contellations. Our highly secure site is well equipped with ample power, data connectivity and space.  We have the capacity to host antennas, equipment, and data services. We have ultra low latency multiple 100GBit/s fibre connectivity to London and into international networks as well as significant financial incentives for inward investment opportunities.

  • Hosting LEO tracking antennas

    We are pleased to host a number of high specification X and S-band tracking antennas which are optimised for low-earth-orbit operations. The 160 acre site at Goonhilly, with its clear horizon views means we can offer tracking capabilities often down to below 5° elevation in all directions from a number of locations.  We have experience in building and operating antennas for our clients as well as assisting them to establish entirely remotely operated services with the minimum of intervention. Of course, we are always on hand should the need arise.
