Deerfield Beach, Florida, February 02, 2021 – Orbit Communication Systems Inc., a leading provider of Earth Observation and New Space Ground Antenna Systems, announced today delivery of two additional Gaia-100 3.7M S/X band systems as key enablers to support ATLAS’ Global Network expansion and performance. The Gaia-100 empowers utilization of ATLAS’ Freedom™ Software Platform.

ATLAS Space Operations is making access to space easier for satellite companies by negating the need to invest in and operate ground infrastructure around the world. The new approach allows ATLAS’ clients to focus on the development and launch of new innovative satellites and payloads to collect information from sensors, cameras, radar systems, etc. The Freedom™ Software Platform allows clients to leverage a common ground network whenever and wherever needed.

The newly deployed Gaia systems enable ATLAS to expand its footprint and service offering to an increasingly demanding market where the speed, security and reliability of data acquisition is paramount to the success of ATLAS’ clients. Coupled with Freedom™, ATLAS Space Operations is changing the way enterprises and governments acquire and utilize earth observation data to improve the daily lives of people anywhere on the planet.

“We are delighted to partner with Orbit to leverage their Gaia systems which help provide crucial framework to support our Freedom™ Network Services,” said Mike Carey, CSO and Co-Founder of ATLAS. “We have several clients that are familiar with Orbit and have asked us to leverage Orbit’s capabilities within our network to ensure continuous and reliable service delivery.”

“Orbit is very proud to support a customer like ATLAS in growing their ground station network,” said Daniel Eshchar, CEO of Orbit, “We believe that the combination of the Gaia-100 product line, bundled with the ATLAS’ Freedom™ Software Platform, will make a significant difference to the end customer.”
