FreeFall has developed a truly unique inflatable ground station that is simple, low-cost, and lightweight. Unlike other inflatable systems that rely on a complex system to form a parabolic reflector within a sphere, at FreeFall the sphere is the reflector. This provides a very wide field of view, and our live feed enables fully electronic steering with no moving parts and no need for precise pointing.
The entire system fits in a backpack ready for rapid deployment and autonomous satellite acquisition and tracking. Motion compensation adjusts the beam to account for wind or other disturbances.
