ATLAS IN THE MEDIA
News & Updates
For eight years during the Cold War, the United States kept a fleet of bombers high above the Arctic around the clock. The Arctic was of great strategic importance at the time for its proximity to the then-Soviet Union. With this in mind, the US flew bombers in patterns over vast swaths of ice to provide the greatest possible degree of readiness.
With the addition of five new ground stations to its growing global ground network, ATLAS Space Operations continues to find ways to achieve its chief mission: connecting humanity through space. The new antennas in New Zealand, Australia, Scotland, Alaska, and an upcoming commissioning in Dubai, UAE represent a dramatic increase in ATLAS’ global footprint and network capacity. The move is expected to bolster global antenna coverage and establish new communications opportunities for the burgeoning satellite market.
With the recent launch of a Soyuz-2.1a rocket from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome, ATLAS Space Operations has grown to support three brand new missions with its Freedom™ Platform. Amid the multinational launch, ATLAS will support Astroscale, LinaSpace, and Axelspace in some of the most impressive space-based missions happening today.
Today, Quintillion Networks and ATLAS Space Operations completed construction of the highest-latitude satellite ground station on US soil. This accomplishment is a significant step forward in the quest to close a critical gap in US security capabilities and provide ground station operations and downlink facilities for polar orbiting satellites. The ground station is now live and ready to serve existing and future commercial and government entities.
Orbit Communication Systems Delivers Two Additional Gaia-100 Ground Antenna Systems for ATLAS Space Operations Global Network Expansion
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.
