Orbital manufactures some of the industry’s highest quality block downconverters (BDCs) for satellite communications. Our BDCs are available in a wide range of bandwidths, frequencies and connector configurations  and can be custom-mounted as required. These frequency converters work with your low noise amplifier (LNA) to provide simultaneous reception of an entire satellite band.

Many of the world’s best SATCOM system integrators use Orbital C, X, Ku and Ka-band BDC modules at their core. Each unit is expertly engineered, hand-tuned and tested – and offers guaranteed performance, stability and long-term reliability in the smallest form factor possible.

Our BDCs are used extensively in military VSAT, SATCOM-on-the-move, emergency services, aeronautical, Earth observation and other applications. We use only the highest quality components and technology, so our BDCs can seamlessly meet the demands of high throughput satellites (HTS) and produce a consistently flat frequency response.
