TXMission Launches C-band Ground Station

April 30, 2021

TXMission is pleased to announce the launch of a new C-band ground station for UAV, HAPS and smallsat applications.

Our compact, integrated ground station for C-band operation comprises our indoor Connect™ Ground Station Modem, an outdoor ten watt SSPA and combined LNA/duplexer filter subassembly. The filters provide transmit/receive isolation. The ground station is suitable for communicating with airborne applications (such as UAVs, High Altitude Pseudo Satellites, smallsats, etc.). The Connect™ Ground Station provides all that is needed, apart from an antenna, for the ground side of a complete bidirectional communications system.

The communications system is compatible with our Quest™ Onboard Software Defined Radio and Quest™ Onboard C-band RF Assembly, and requires only an antenna to be added for a full solution.

The ground station is also available as individual components, suitable for integration with compatible third-party equipment. There are a range of mounting options for fixing the SSPA, LNA and duplexer to an antenna support arm or reflector.

All TXMission solutions can be customized to meet customer-specific requirements, including different frequency bands and transmit power levels. Please contact us for more details.

The Connect™ ground station modem provides the waveforms, such as DVB-S2/S2X and high-data rate performance needed by airborne and smallsat applications, such as 4G/5G, IoT, telecoms, edge computing, intelligence gathering and ground observation.
