ASC Signal and Globecomm have signed an agreement for an Earth station at Globecomm’s location in Laurel, Md. plus an NGC (Next Generation Controller) update for an antenna measuring 5.6 metres. The Earth station is planned to incorporate a new NGC-supported Ku-band antenna framework measuring 9.4 metres that is fully controlled environmentally.
Globecomm also went for multiple feature options in the Next Generation Controller, for example the integrated spectrum analyser to enable an improved system of control in a footprint that is significantly reduced. This contract marks over twenty gateway antennas that ASC Signal has delivered to Globecomm.
