One alternative solution to procuring SSC ground segment services is to host
mission-specific antennas and other equipment at SSC locations.
Several clients have entrusted SSC to operate their antennas and other assets
hosted at one of our SSC sites around the world.
We manage the operations and maintenance of all client-owned systems, but also
welcome customers who wish to provide their own staff at the hosting site. We
have more than 30 years of experience in hosting services that began in 1979 at
Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden.
Our operational support and helpdesk service is provided 24 hours per day, 365
days per year.

their premises and SSC can grant long term permission for the area used.
SSC offers the following services and advantages:
* Strategically-located geographic placement offering polar and low-inclination
orbit service advantages
* Effective operational support based on SSC’s extensive operations and
* Well-established communication infrastructure with easy accessibility.
* Possibility for backup support from existing SSC antenna systems.
* High functional and high physical security level.
* High security in access and information handling
* Highly reliable infrastructure service with electrical power, UPS and backup
* Services with radio frequency management arising from operation and all
