Leaf Space operates, and continues to develop, a solid and reliable distributed ground station infrastructure to provide effective ground segment-as-a-service solutions and enable full exploitation of space data. The company has a vision of being the leading provider of such services in order to drive expansion and sustainability of the space ecosystem and downstream applications.
Leaf Space's proprietary concept is focused on providing satellite connectivity as-a-service, to support clients with their satellite operations by managing and procuring the entire ground segment system through a complete set of services. These include time-shared access to ground, customized communication solutions, ground station procurement, consultancy, and backup services.
Leaf Space aims to provide the most easy-to-use, flexible, cost-effective, and operationally solid ground segment solutions to reliably support satellites in LEO and MEO along all lifecycle phases. Focus is put on highly scalable interfaces and operations, while continuously iterating according to NewSpace market needs in terms of new verticals (Launch Vehicles, HAPS) in addition to satellite and constellation operators.
The company's infrastructure is globally distributed and utilizes both 3.7-meter and 3-meter parabolic dishes used for both S-band and X-band operations, while Yagis are used for UHF and VHF respectively, implementing commercial high datarate receivers in combination with Leaf Space baseband processing software.
The NewSpace industry's fast-paced development is constantly requiring higher levels of protection and risk mitigation for cybersecurity threats. Leaf Space is in an active partnership with Swiss company CYSEC providing space cybersecurity services applied to the Leaf Line and Leaf Key ground segment services.
