Satellite Communication Antenna Systems – Viasat Digital Communications Company

Viasat designs and manufactures antenna systems that lead several satellite communication markets. Worldwide installations include over 100 gateway systems for the most advanced satellite communication networks in the world. These gateways tie broadband satellite networks into high-speed fiber that forms the internet backbone.

Global Antenna Leadership

Other installations include thousands of limited motion antenna systems and over 550 full-motion antennas. In addition, Viasat is the leader in remote sensing antenna systems that process the imaging data for applications like Google Maps. The company’s total of more than 100 of these systems is more than all other providers of these systems worldwide.

Mobile satellite networking is one of the fastest growing segments addressing small systems for aircraft and vehicles. Continuous innovation is needed to develop antennas with a low profile, less weight, low power consumption, and decreased costs. Viasat has delivered more than 1,000 terminals that are used for airborne broadband applications.

Better Communications for More Markets

Customers include consumer internet service providers (ISPs), the Department of Defense, multichannel TV broadcasters, business communications providers, commercial airlines, business jet owners and operators, and geospacial intelligence (earth imaging) companies.

We build complete antenna systems “from RF to bits”

  • Panels and mechanical structures that form the antenna
  • Motors and controllers that position the reflectors
  • Radio frequency transmit/receive electronics, high-speed modems, and software systems that deliver a stream of bits to the end customer
  • Low-profile, high-frequency radomes for the airborne terminals

Outdoor test facilities include a multi-system, multi-pad boresite range, a 1500-foot ground reflection or elevated pattern range, and an elevated multi-site control room with test equipment.

New and custom satellite communication antennas

Though we’re proud of our heritage in large satellite antennas, we’re constantly developing new products and adapting our antenna know-how to customers building new generation, custom systems as well.

Service & Maintenance

We offer installation, integration, upgrades, field service and support of your L-, S-, X-, and Ka-band systems worldwide.
