  • United States to acquire Thales’ advanced ground segment technology to respond to distress signals

    Cannes, October 15, 2018 - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in United States, has chosen Thales to develop and build an operational ground station in the southwest part of the country, at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, to track Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) satellites* operating in medium Earth orbit (MEO). The ground station will receive and process 406 MHz distress beacon signals from the MEO satellites being tracked, and relay them to the US SARSAT (Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking) program’s Mission Control Center (USMCC), via US government communication links, for validation and distribution to rescue authorities. This ground station will be designated the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Southwest USA Medium-Earth Orbit Local User Terminal (SUSA MEOLUT), and will be an integral part of the MEO-based ground system operated by the USMCC.
