HISPASAT offers consulting services for the purchase of satellites that cover everything from satellite specifications to in orbit validation to design and test phases. Consulting is intended for new operators as well as those that do not have a purchasing division. The main services provided are:
HISPASAT also offers advisory and assurance services for the space sector.
HISPASAT´s Technical Division can also provide the following satellite operation and test services to external operators:
After more than 20 years of operation of the different satellite platforms made by European and American manufacturers, and a ground segment distributed in four countries (Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina) and two continents (Europe, America), the Operations team has extensive experience in satellite control and the operation and maintenance of ground segment. Some examples of service delivery to third parties are operating the IOT test campaign of the RASCOM-1 satellite, participation in the operation of the Xtar and Spainsat satellites and the operation and maintenance of stations and ground segment of these satellites.
The main location of HISPASAT Operations in Arganda del Rey (Madrid), has allows for expansion to install additional infrastructure (ground stations, buildings) for the provision of services to other operators and is equipped with a power plant with redundant transformation systems, diesel generators and fuel tanks to provide permanent continuity of electrical supply, and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to ensure the proper functioning of all electronic systems. The possibility also exists to connect to high capacity terrestrial communication systems (FO, fibre optic in redundant ring) for the handling of signals in teleport use.
In order to reduce interference reduction that can affect satellite communication services, the Department of Traffic Management and Control (PMC) continuously monitors the satellite carriers. If an incident involving any other operator, the PMC contacts the parties involved to avoid inter-system interference. In some instances, coverage geolocation services may be used to locate the source of interference.
