Orbital 26 GHz Space-Based SmallSat Receiver

Orbital 26 GHz Space-Based SmallSat Receiver

The 26 GHz space-based small satellite receiver from Orbital Research delivers high performance for big-bandwidth LEO missions and earth observation (EO) systems. This agile frequency converter is a perfect front-end for software defined radios (SDRs) and on-board processors in the K-band SmallSat market. 

When paired with a Tethers International SWIFT SDR, our SmallSat receiver is a complete turn-key communications payload system – or it can be customized to suit your form factor. The device can be used for LEO, MEO, sun synchronous or polar orbit missions and allows for in-orbit changes to mission profiles.
