SANTIAGO SATELLITE STATION

SURROUNDED BY THE FOOTHILLS OF THE ANDES

 

Antennas and Basebands

The Santiago Satellite Station has three TT&C antennas, operating in S-Band up and downlink. All of these antennas interface with the operations building, where the receiving, processing, recording and monitoring systems are located. Operations are remotely controlled from the Network Management Center in Kiruna, Sweden, on a 24/7 basis.

The station hosts antennas and baseband equipment from foreign organizations that operate on S-band, C-band, and Ka-band. It has plenty of room for additional similar systems.
