The Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) has established a new multi-mission ground station at the GISTDA Space Krenovation Park in Sri Racha,Thailand. This is an important addition to the already large SSC global network of ground stations, making access to information easier and quicker for SSC’s customers.
"The establishment in Sri Racha is an important step for us and our partner to meet the global space development. The number of satellites is increasing rapidly and thanks to this new ground station, we strengthen our total capacity to transfer data between our customers and their satellites", says Leif Österbo, President Satellite Management Services at SSC.
"We are very happy for SSC’s increased presence in Thailand. The establishment of this ground station makes a major contribution to the Thai space industry in general and especially to the Space Park in Sriracha", says Dr. Damrongrit Niammuad, Director of Space Krenovation Park at GISTDA.
Through SSC’s global ground station network, many different actors and stake-holders can get quick access to important information. A good example is information used to observe important phenomena on earth, such as changes in the environment or the climate.
This is the biggest foreign investment within the Thai space industry so far.
