The Ecuadorian Space Agency (EXA) offers selected land for ground segment activities, well served with energy, water, internet, backup systems, and security. Located in the pacific coast of Ecuador, with 110 ha dedicated to construction and operations of ground stations. The land plot lies in a dry, arid region 90 m above sea level and away from tectonically active areas..

EXA absorbs the investment for the construction of new infrastructure and facilities so that customers only pay for rent, maintenance fees, services bills, and government fees. However, EXA adapts to the requirements and necessities of each client and can offer all-inclusive or normal contract services.

Tax discounts are available and lower tariffs have been agreed for radiofrequency spectrum use, especially for modern and faster telecommunications standards (i.e., X, K-band).

Key benefits:

  • Maximize access time in an equatorial location, for multiple satellites or constellations
  • No up-front investment
  • Perfect environmental conditions, 24/7 operations, radomes are usually not required
  • Free consulting to minimize expenses (fees, taxes, and importation matters)
  • Ecuador is a peaceful country, with reliable services, friendly to your long-term presence
