Used VertexRSI 7.2m Antenna installed in Qaanaaq, the Northernmost town in Greenland

This was the most challenging project ever done! An used and refurbished VertexRSI 7.2m antenna was installed and prepared with extra de-icing elements for installation in harsh weather conditions in this Arctic environment. The city of Qaanaaq and surrounding settlements will have a better internet connection using this antenna that will be pointed at the Amazonas Nexus satellite at 61° West, operated by Hispasat satellite operator.

Skybrokers team installed, aligned and tested the antenna successfully in August and September 2021 for Tele Post Greenland, that recently changed its name into Tusass. The installation was finished just before winter arrived! We did it ‘the Greenland way’, using the resources that were locally available.

VertexRSI offered the full range of earth station and base station communications products and was specialized in fixed and mobile satellite communication gateways, antennas, high power amplifiers, baseband products, frequency converters, controls and microwave components. VertexRSI offered design and engineering support as preparation for the installation.

Skybrokers offers for over 10 years VertexRSI Satellite Earth Station Antennas, new as well as used. We can provide turnkey solutions, refurbishment and upgrades. We supported several clients with new and used antennas, such as the VertexRSI 3.8m, VertexRSI 6.3m, VertexRSI 6.1, VertexRSI 7.2m, VertexRSI 8.1m and VertexRSI 9.3m.

The company was founded in 1973 and operated from 2004 till 2019 as subsidiary of General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies, a USA based business unit of General Dynamics C4 Systems, operating as General Dynamics Mission Systems. VertexRSI was owned by Tripoint Global, a privately held company in New York who bought Vertex in 1999 from Vertex Corp. Tripoint Global was composed that time of RSI, Prodelin, Gabriel Electronics & Microwave and CSA Wireless Communications. Tripoint Global merged Vertex with RSI to become VertexRSI. GDSatcom acquired Trpoint Global in 2004.

In 2019 VertexRSI (GDSatcom) was acquired by CPI, Inc.
