Ultra high-performance frequency converters for SATCOM

Reliable in even the most adverse conditions on Earth and in space

Orbital Research manufactures high-performance frequency converters and RF components for the satellite communications (SATCOM) industry. Our products – low noise block downconverters (LNBs), block downconverters (BDCs), low noise amplifiers (LNAs), space-based frequency converters, bias tees and more – offer the highest quality and reliability, even in the most challenging conditions.

We provide standard and custom SATCOM equipment to customers in military, aeronautical, earth observation, satellite news gathering (SNG), SATCOM-on-the-move (SOTM) and other satellite industries. And because our frequency converters and components are professionally engineered, hand-tuned and individually tested, we can guarantee high performance.

SATCOM Innovation: 2-year Award Winner

We recently made the 2021 Ready to Rocket list in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) category for the second consecutive year.

What can Orbital LNBs and BDCs do for you?

In satellite communications, low noise blockdown converters (LNBs) serve two critical functions: they amplify signals and convert high satellite frequencies into lower frequencies.

Blockdown converters (BDCs) translate C-, K-X-band frequencies into L-band signals that can be transferred through cables.
