Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) strengthens its polar capability with four new antennas at its polar ground stations; two in Canada and two in Sweden. First out is a new 7,3m tri-band antenna at the Inuvik Satellite Station Facility (ISSF) in Canada. Together these four antennas will extend the SSC’s capacity and capability by adding further connectivity for polar orbiting satellites. The announcement marks yet another step in SSC’s major extension towards a fully global Ka-band connectivity by the end of 2021. The new 7,3-meter antenna, owned and operated by SSC, features tri-band capability accommodating S-, X- and Ka-band frequencies. Together with the two existing SSC antennas at the ISSF site, the new establishment will add to the company’s unmatched polar connectivity for satellite operations.
