Cobham Satcom and Mangata Networks Announce Partnership on Satellite Tracking Systems and Ground Infrastructure – Parabolic Arc

CONCORD, California and PHOENIX (Cobham Satcom PR) — Cobham Satcom, a leading global provider of terrestrial and maritime satellite communications solutions to the government, business sectors and Mangata Networks, which specializes in innovative satellite-enabled telecommunications services, today announced an agreement to implement multiple gateways Cobham Satcom 4.0M TRACKER antennas worldwide.

The partnership between Cobham Satcom and Mangata supports Mangata’s initial terrestrial ground stations. It also represents the company’s first big step in leveraging its HEO (Highly Elliptical Orbit) and MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) satellite constellations, which the infrastructure will serve. Mangata’s innovative architecture will dramatically reduce the capital expenditure required for this global connectivity scale, while creating access to cloud technology, backhaul, IoT services and 5G coverage for end users around the world, enabling, for the first time , the sharing of knowledge on a truly human scale.

Cobham Satcom takes a new approach to gateways and ground stations that is scalable, easy to implement and cost effective. Its TRACKER gateways have been selected by multiple LEO and MEO constellation operators based on proven performance, reliability, robust design suitable for all environments, low total cost of ownership and Cobham Satcom’s ability to meet the demanding implementation schedules.

Modular and easy to configure, TRACKER Gateway Terminals are available in a range of sizes up to 6m in single or multiple frequency bands. Three-axis tracking with protective radome enables operation in the harshest environments and ensures accurate tracking at all times, with optimal signal quality, uninterrupted passes, low power consumption and high reliability.

Brian Holz, CEO and Co-Founder of Mangata, commented: “Cobham Satcom has provided Mangata with an extremely reliable, high-performance gateway solution that will be a core component of our network. Its technology enhances our value proposition for our customers and will allow us to operate high-capacity feeder links in more places, at all times, reducing network access costs.”

Manish Gupta, CEO of Cobham Satcom added: “We are delighted to be collaborating with the Mangata team on this expansive project. We recognize the critical importance of bringing fast, reliable and affordable connectivity to the world and were particularly impressed with Mangata’s mission and vision, which are so well aligned with our own.”
