Adelaide, Australia -- Saber Astronautics is pleased to announce the addition of RBC Signals as a satellite communications supplier to the Responsive Space Operations Centre™ (RSOC).
The RSOC is Saber’s mission control centre program offering satellite operations and traffic support. With several mission control centers based in Australia and Colorado, the RSOC provides a global “follow-the-sun” service for large numbers of satellites. The service includes an open marketplace for satellite communications giving satellite owners the ability to select a service which scales to their needs.
Saber’s CEO, Dr Jason Held said, “We are genuinely excited to welcome the RBC Signals network of dishes. They provide a global capability that fits very well with the types of satellite customers that we see emerging in the market.”
RBC Signals has a network of over 80 antennas in over 60 locations around the world. RBC Signals offers ground stations as a service (GSaaS) allowing clients to receive scalable, flexible solutions for their satellite data communication needs. RBC Signals supports all major frequency bands.
“We are very excited to be participating in the Saber Astronautics marketplace.” Said Ron Faith, President and COO of RBC Signals. “The Saber Astronautics marketplace represents the next phase in the maturation of the space sector.”
Saber developed the RSOC program in 2014 to support the rapidly growing small satellite sector and the Australian site received $6M funding from the Australian Space Agency’s Space Infrastructure Fund last year.
