Ground Station Operations
The Ground Station Operations Services provided by Telespazio Germany include antenna operational control for a wide range of missions and mission phases. Our multinational team of experts has provided critical support for numerous missions, including the launch of the Galileo L11 satellite in 2021.

Our Projects

Our key customer in this services sector is the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Our team of technical staff works 24/7 from the Weilheim Ground Station Complex in Weilheim, near Munich, configuring and operating complex systems for multi-mission tracking antennas, up-and down converters, high power amplifiers and other DLR antenna control systems. As part of the German Space Operations Center (GSOC) in Oberpfaffenhofen, the facility handles data processing and network communications for both manned and unmanned missions. It houses a variety of antenna dishes ranging in size from less than 7 metres up to 30 metres, covering all major spectrums (Ka, Ku, and S band).

Another team at this Ground Station is in charge of the antennas of the satellite-based communication system of the German Armed Forces. The complex requirements of these SATCOMBw satellites include the infrastructure configuration, carrying out and archiving ranging measurements and communication with commercial space segment operators. Our team has been assisting with the operation of these satellites since the first launch in 2009.
