Our Data Hubs and Ground Stations

The Arctic Space Data Hub

... the most cost efficient solution in the Arctic Region!

  • 65.4 degrees north: Up to 8-10 passes and 60 minutes per day for polar orbits.
  • An overall up-time of 99.9 %.
  • Calm and dry weather improve the service quality and reduce maintenance.
  • EGSE integration through a native direct data center connection.
  • Redundant fiber, electrical power supplies, and 24/7 security.
  • 100 % sustainable and fully carbon dioxide free.

 

Ultra Efficient Elevation Mask

 

  • We continuously track satellites below elevations of 10 degrees.

  • No solid obstacles such as buildings in close vicinity.

  • The blue lines in the elevation mask indicate highest points, which are mainly single trees causing little attenuation, and which are going to be removed in the upcoming months.

  • Red lines indicate the lowest possible elevation and the end of tracking.

Use Case: Get more for Less

Polar Earth Orbits (PEO) and Sun Synchronous Orbits (SSO) are the most common orbits for earth observation and satellite communication missions. All those orbits have one thing in common. For each orbit the satellite will fly over the north and south pole.

Due to the high latitude of the Arctic Space Data Hub we accumulate much more satellite communications time as for example a network of lower latitude ground stations. We simply get more with less resulting in

  • a much simpler ground segment mitigating network related risks,
  • reduced costs since one ground station is simply more cost efficient than a network,
  • ultra efficient satellite operations due to a ground segment latency of less than 3 ms.

As shown in the picture, at our location we are able to contact a 600 km SSO satellite 9-10 times a day with a single ground station.
