Globecomm has provided hundreds of ASC Signal antennas to its customers over the years.

ASC Signal Corporation has been awarded a contract by Globecomm to expand and upgrade the company’s earth station antennas at Globecomm’s Maryland teleport. The additional earth station, for use on a new service contract for Globecomm, expands the Ku-band capabilities at the company’s Laurel, MD location, while the upgrade adds significant functionality to an existing ASC Signal antenna already in service. Globecomm has provided hundreds of ASC Signal antennas to its customers over the years and the addition of these antennas brings the total number of ASC gateway antennas installed at Globecomm facilities to more than twenty.

ASC Signal is providing a new, 9.4-meter Ku-band antenna system, complete with full environmental controls and Next Generation Controller (NGC) to enhance the antenna’s operation. Globecomm selected several optional features in the NGC, including the built-in spectrum analyzer, to provide a more complete control system in a significantly reduced footprint.

In addition to the new 9.4-meter antenna, ASC Signal is providing Globecomm with a NGC upgrade for an existing 5.6-meter ASC antenna. Globecomm is taking advantage of the extensive features of the NGC to enhance the antenna’s performance.

“Globecomm has one of the largest and most expert engineering staffs in the business,” said ASC Signal CEO Keith Buckley. “That makes them a technically discriminating customer, and we are particularly proud to have been their technology partner for so many years.”

“We select ASC Signal products for their technical excellence and the company’s commitment to service,” said Michele Scotto, Vice President of Global Operations for Globecomm. “Those are Globecomm’s commitments to its customers, too, and something we value in partner suppliers like ASC Signal.”

ASC Signal’s line of high-performance antennas, from its compact 2.4-meter ESA and extensive line of HF products up to its largest 14-meter ATC earth stations, cover all widely-used commercial and military frequency bands from HF to V-bands. The large number of feed options available on the company’s antennas and the overall flexibility of configurations continue to prove extremely valuable to users of the company’s entire line of antennas on systems in use around the world. All of the company’s antenna systems utilize ASC's Next Generation Controller (NGC), which gives users a single, simplified, central device to control and operate multiple antenna systems. The NGC’s advanced features include remote access and tracking capabilities built into the system, an internal spectrum analyzer, redundancy control systems, and many other high-performance controller features.
