SaxaVord Ground Station

SaxaVord Spaceport is developing a ground station network on the island of Unst, Shetland, the UK's most northerly location.

The ground station network will consist of an array of 1.5m to 3.7m antennas supporting satellite operations in a low earth polar and sun-synchronous orbits. The antennas will operate in a number of frequency bands ranging from UHF/VHF to S & X Band. The island will also offer ground station hosting services for third party networks which need connectivity, power and pad facilities.

SaxaVord Spaceport has partnered with the Leaf Space Ground station network to provide support to already operating satellite customers, but also to future clients that launch through the spaceport. The Leaf Space network provides SaxaVord Spaceport with a unique offering to support launch telemetry and flight termination of the launch vehicle, handling of LEOP and continued satellite down and uplink support through any of the 20+ ground stations across the world.
