VSAT (Fixed) Satellite Internet

Powerful satellite antennas, ideal for moving larger volumes of data

VSAT – “Very Small Aperture Terminal” – is a satellite ground station that allows businesses and individuals to transmit and receive data, voice and video via satellites. The dish antenna will always be smaller than 3.8 meters in this classification.

We describe these products as ‘Fixed’ as once installed they’re not usually moved around. The Kymeta u8 is a rare in-motion VSAT device, and our Toughsat Flyaway has been designed to be portable, but will be stationary when in active use.

Ground Control manufactures a number of auto-deploy antennas at our plant in California, and we work with various trusted modem and HUB technologies.
