Globecomm Orders New Earth Station, Antenna Upgrades from ASC Signal
[Via Satellite 04-24-2015] Globecomm has signed a contract with ASC Signal for a new Earth station at the company’s Laurel, Md. location, along with a Next Generation Controller (NGC) upgrade for a 5.6-meter antenna. The Earth station will feature a new NGC-equipped, 9.4 meter, Ku-band antenna system with full environmental controls.
Globecomm also selected several optional features in the NGC, such as the built-in spectrum analyzer, in order to have a better control system within a significantly reduced footprint. With this contract, ASC Signal will have provided more than 20 gateway antennas for the company.
