Delivering High Quality Turnkey Ground Stations


Building full ground stations to assure seamless satellite operations is a large scale project with lots of risk and potential failure points.

To minimize risk, Kratos provides end-to-end turnkey solutions that offer a single point of contact for all project needs. This simplifies project communication and accelerates timetables while reducing the number of involved parties to minimize risk.

With experience spanning 300 missions over 30 years, Kratos has a long history of Turnkey Earth Station deliveries, from site builds through to system upgrades.


With offices worldwide our team supports customers through the whole project life-cycle. From project definition and specifications through design, production, integration, installation and tests up to post delivery services.

Our turnkey projects include full earth station builds, including data centers, NOCs, shelters, and equipment through to RF equipment and antennas. These projects have included applications such as: broadcast and headends (DTH and contribution), Monitoring and Control (M&C), communications gateways, Carrier System Monitoring (CSM), satellite TVRO, VSAT systems, SNG and transportable antennas.
