Global Ground Station Network
GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY FOR RELIABLE SPACE OPERATIONS
SSC’s global ground station network was designed specifically to provide comprehensive communications and ground support to Earth-orbiting satellites. Our reliable ground segment services supply a large diversity of satellite operators worldwide, providing support for the whole satellite mission life-cycle and in any orbit, through our high, mid and low latitude stations strategically positioned around the globe.
SSC's ground network comprises core SSC owned stations and collaborative partner satellite stations strategically located around the world.
Each satellite station is unique in its specific application and services with some overlapping capabilities allowing customized solutions to global tracking network applications. In most cases, the ground stations are operated 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
