Earth Stations

dB Broadcast’s earth station integration capability draws on the extensive experience of S3 Satcom in the field and is characterised by attention to detail and technical best practice. The service includes initial design, supply, system installation and commissioning.

Projects range from small VSAT systems through to large teleports with multiple large antenna systems and complex waveguide switching. The company’s long experience on IF and baseband systems coupled with the use of Fiesta for remote monitoring and control (RM&C) means that dB is a true one-stop shop for even the most complex requirements.

Earth station considerations include:

  • Advice on antenna and high power amplifier (HPA) selection, RF, IF and baseband systems.
  • Initial design including system levels and link budgets
  • Agnostic selection of key components to arrive at the optimum system solution
  • Factory assembly and test to minimise on-site issues
  • Logistics
  • On-site installation and commissioning
  • RM&C capability through the use of the S3 Fiesta NMS.
