Orbit Communications Systems Ltd., a leading provider of precision tracking-based communications solutions and airborne communications management systems, announced that startup CubeSat developer, EnduroSat, headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria, placed an initial order for Orbit’s 4.5-meter Gaia 100 system to serve as the foundation for its satellite-tracking ground stations. Delivery of the system, which includes installation and support, is expected in Q1 of 2018.
EnduroSat, which is turning satellites into consumer products, promises configuration in a matter of minutes and delivery in a matter of days for its full range of 10-cm satellites (“CubeSats”) and related accessories, along with a full warranty. EnduroSat Founder and CEO, Raycho Raychev, said, “We are proud to partner with Orbit, whose team showed great professionalism and understanding of our needs. Orbit’s Gaia 100 satellite-tracking ground station system will enable new capabilities for EnduroSat and take us another step forward towards realizing our vision.”
“We are both excited and honored to be working with a young, dynamic company like EnduroSat,” added Eitan Livneh, CEO of Orbit. “We are big believers in small satellites and hope to share in their success – due, in part, to visionaries like Raycho – for years to come.”
