VertexRSI 11.1m Earth Station Antenna installed at Cobbett Hill Earth Station UK.

VertexRSI 11.1m Earth Station Antenna installed at Cobbett Hill Earth Station UK

In October 2013 Skybrokers project- and installation team relocated a VertexRSI 11.1m antenna from Brookmans Park London to Cobbett Hill Earth Station close to Guildford UK. The whole operation took 8-9 weeks and was conducted by a four-member installation team. The Skybrokers relocated a VertexRSI 11.1m antenna project took 3 weeks to dis-assemble and transport the antenna parts on trucks to the other side of London. With great help of the folks of Cobbett Hill we re-installed, aligned, cleaned and successfully tested the antenna prior to hand it over to the client.

Cobbett Hill Earth Station (CBH), located near Guildford only 27 miles from central London in the UK, and occupies a 7-acre secure compound on 200 acres of privately owned land. The teleport housed 50 antennas with spare capacity enabling quick turnaround times on customer requirements, and had visibility on over 150 geostationary satellites.

CBH was an independent teleport that started business in 1996, when it was acquired in 2019 by satellite service provider CETel from Germany, that was bought by Axess Networks Europe and later HispaSat satellite operator from Spain.


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 andĀ 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.
