03 December 2018
On 23 November, the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) officially opened a multi-mission ground station in Sri Racha, Thailand, at the Space Krenovation Park (SKP), a science park developed by Thailand's space agency GISTDA in order to develop the nation's space industry.
The new ground station will join SSC's existing global network of 18 solely-owned and collaborative ground stations, including in Australia, Japan, and India. The SKP station hosts a 7.3-meter antenna system with capabilities for Telemetry Tracking & Command (TT&C) and data downlink services, supporting S-Band (uplink and downlink) and X-Band (downlink), with the option to add Ka-Band in the future.
