"The establishment in Sri Racha, Thailand, 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.
Through SSC’s 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 sudden changes in the environment or the climate.
This is the biggest foreign investment within the Thai space industry so far.
