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.

Talking to EO satellites in the 26 GHz spectrum

Space-based frequency converters for less crowded bands

The traditional satellite market – dominated by bus-sized satellites and mega budgets – is giving way to SmallSats, CubeSats, NanoSats and even PicoSats that weigh less than 1 kilogram. These light, miniaturized satellites are much less expensive to send into orbit, creating a new kind of space race in the private sector.
