Viasat – Satellite Antenna Systems
Viasat designs and manufactures antenna systems and high-rate receivers that lead several satellite communication markets. Worldwide installations include over 100 gateway systems for the most advanced satellite communication networks in the world.
Viasat Antenna Systems
Designs, integrates, and delivers high-performance “RF to Archive” tracking antenna systems for the remote sensing, telemetry, data link, satellite TT&C, and satellite communications markets.
Our ground systems support LEO, MEO, and GEO satellites from UHF to Ka-band. Spanning the globe from pole-to-pole, we have delivered over 150 commercial remote sensing antennas and upgrades in more locations than any other major manufacturer.
Extending the Life of Your Antenna System
Our refurbishments have kept antennas working in the field for over 45 years, and they are still accurately tracking today. Take advantage of the latest technology without the expense of a new antenna, even if they are not original Viasat equipment. We do most of the work in the field to get your antenna back online as quickly as possible.
We offer installation, integration, upgrades, field service and support of your L-, S-, X-, and Ka-band systems worldwide
Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Antenna Solutions
Trusted in national security operations around the world, Viasat’s advanced antenna systems facilitate fast and secure decision-making during ISR missions.
ISR operations are critical to global safety and security. With Viasat, you can feel confident you have the most sophisticated antenna systems working for you. Our antennas are designed to support government customers with very high rate data processing and resiliency for their most demanding missions. With our leading antenna technologies and strong positions in the satellite Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) market, we power seamless missions around the world.
Whatever the ISR mission, our range of fixed, transportable, and airborne antennas support it.
