Andrew 7.6m Satellite Earth Station Antenna installed at the Hellas-Sat teleport on Cyprus

Skybrokers delivered and installed an used and refurbished Andrew 7.6m earth station antenna with upgraded ACS3000 tracking at Hellas-Sat Teleport on Cyprus. The project coordination and installation, including RF testing, were successfully performed by a two member installation team and took 3 weeks in May 2017. Although the system was commissioned successfully, the antenna was mis-performing after some weeks. Our technicians made all efforts to fix the problems and after some days of fault-finding and parts replacement, the antenna was performing within specifications.

Hellas-Sat satellite operator is a premium satellite communications solutions provider founded in 2001. It operates Teleports in Greece and Cyprus and owns and operates the HellasSat-2 satellite. The company jointly owns the Hellas-Sat 3/Inmarsat S EAN satellite with Inmarsat, and operates a payload on the Hellas-Sat 4/SaudiGeoSat-1 satellite at 39° East owned by satellite operator Arabsat and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST).

Andrew Corporation was the owner of Andrew Satellite Communications business and in 2001 formed into ASC Signal Corporation that was acquired by CPI in September 2015. ASC Signal was integrated into the CPI Antenna Systems Division as of 2017 when in 2020 the ASC Signal Antenna division was sold to Kratos Defense & Security. CPI had acquired GDSatcom Technologies in 2019, but the U.S. Justice Department required CPI to divest its ASC Signal Division since there would be a monopoly on the antenna business in the USA.
