Infostellar’s antenna network to support APAC GSaaS offering

Infostellar, a Japan-based ground-segment-as-a-service (GSaaS) provider, is planning to deploy a network of Infostellar-owned antennas focused on serving its global clients’ interests in the Asia-Pacific region.

The APAC ground station network is being rolled out in locations that support a wide range of applications, including maritime awareness, general Earth observation, and surveillance. The antenna locations will include Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. Availability is projected for the second half of 2025.

Infostellar says the network will benefit from its cloud-based ground station control platform, StellarStation, through which ground segment services are to be scheduled and controlled on these new antennas.

In addition to this new service, StellarStation provides access to the full range of the ground-stations-as-a-service offering that Infostellar makes available to satellite operators from a network that includes Viasat RTE, Amazon Web Services (AWS-GS), and other ground stations around the world.

The ground station part of a GSaaS offering typically involves renting a satellite ground station to communicate with a satellite, rather than a company building its own infrastructure. This helps companies that may lack the funds or technology to build their own ground stations.

Infostellar provides global services to a wide range of international satellite operators, delivering their telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C) and data downlinks on a per-satellite-contact basis. Infostellar also provides a portfolio of technical and regulatory services to complement its GSaaS and hosting businesses.

As well as ground stations Infostellar also provides support for the ground segment operations necessary for satellite operations, such as radio license acquisition and frequency coordination operations.

By lowering the barriers to entry in the ground segment, Infostellar says it empowers new space businesses to build better missions and improve the quality of their service.
