Satellites play a critical role in our daily lives, whether its studying the Earth’s weather and environment, helping people and things communicate in remote locations, or monitoring critical infrastructure. Many new satellites are launched into low Earth orbit (LEO), which requires a worldwide network of antennas to operate. Ground Station-as-a-Service (GSaaS) companies such as Leaf Space give satellite operators the ability to lease time on a ground network, and when a satellite is within its field of view, use Leaf Space’s antennas and other equipment to communicate between the satellite and ground.
