TVRO Satellite Installation Site Survey
A site survey is conducted to determine installation site viability and readiness for your required satellite system installation. Our team of trained professionals will conduct a complete walk through of the installation site to inspect, evaluate and document all viable installation options including antenna placement, antenna mounting options, satellite arc clearance, line of sight (LOS) verification to target satellite(s), indoor equipment location, AC power, IFL cable routing, building point of entry and distance from Outdoor equipment (ODU) to indoor equipment (IDU).
Access to building exterior, interior, roof, roof access and indoor equipment locations are required to conduct the survey. Permission to document and photograph the building and facilities is also needed to complete the survey.
Typical site surveys for TVRO systems from 2.4M to 4.6M can be completed in under two (2) hours on-site. Survey’s for medium to large earth station antenna systems (3.8M – 13.0M) will require additional time to complete based on scope of work.
After completion of the physical site survey, a site survey report will be created that organizes all the survey information and photographs into one comprehensive document. The site survey report will be loaded into a secure, web portal and made available for download to approved contacts.
