All-in-one compact S/X/Ka 4m-class commodity antenna for Small Sats & Constellations

LEGION, all-in-one S/X/Ka 4m-class commodity antenna for Small Sats & Constellations

The LEGION 400 addresses new space challenges of more connectivity, faster delivery, overall better value & flexibility. The LEGION 400 antenna system meets both the large volume requirements of Communication Satellite Constellations as well as the versatility required by Earth Observation satellite tracking antennas. The LEGION 400 makes this possible with its unique patented tri-band S/X/Ka concentric feed  combined with a lean & ultra accurate pedestal. The LEGION 400 is also capable of supporting LEOP & Launch Vehicles by employing a state-of-the-art S-band Single Channel Monopulse autotrack feed.

With the LEGION 400, Safran Data Systems offers its customers complete flexibility in building up a scalable ground segment, with - a single vendor solution for the complete system, including antenna, radome, RF, baseband, station Monitoring & Control and scheduler.


Turnkey S/X/Ka medium-size antennas for Earth Observation

VISION, Turnkey S/X/Ka medium-size antennas for Earth Observation

Safran’s VISION Series is the ultimate medium size ground station for commercial or defense satellite imagery.  Due to its unique e-Antenna architecture embedding the NuRoN suite (Software radio), doors are opened to a dramatic simplification of  infrastructure & operation with virtualized data and M&C.

Single Channel Monopulse autotrack is an available option in any band, however, the VISION is reliable using program track only thanks to its highly accurate pedestal. VISION is an affordable, true Ka-band antenna available on the market now. 

As with all Safran Data Systems antennas, the VISION benefits from  the unique S/X/Ka concentric patented feed, offering a true continuity of operations for satellite generations to come..


Turnkey satellite tracking systems ready for existing and next generation satellites S/X/Ka-band: ORION Series

ORION, large S/X/Ka full motion ground systems dedicated to Space Agencies

The ORION flagship antenna systems are designed to match and exceed the most demanding space agency requirements. The ORION-Series is defined as a complete package including simultaneous dual polarization, single channel monopulse tracking and close-loop testing in all bands. Safran’s service ensures a smooth deployment, easy start up operation and a long service life time. From 7.3 m to 13.5 m, the ORION-Series benefits from Safran’s expertise in radio frequency, mechanical systems, servo systems, signal processing and software development. The unique tri-band S/X/Ka feed, patented by Safran, and associated with Safran’s in-house pedestal and related equipment, allows operational continuity with existing satellites and is field proven for the upcoming generation (Ka-band).

Mobile satellite tracking systems : IRIS-Series

IRIS, mobile satellite tracking systems

Safran’s IRIS series systems are designed for mobile satellite operations. Whatever the desired form factor (transit cases, AMP container, trailer, skid…), the expected mobility aspects (land towing, backpack pedestrian, commercial airlines…) and requested performance (G/T & EIRP), there is a fast deployable IRIS system that will exceed your expectations for field missions.
