Getting Equipment Tested

Manufacturers interested in having satellite earth station products evaluated may directly approach any one or all of the satellite operators listed below. In cases where testing is carried out in conjunction with more than one satellite operator, the GVF MRA can be applied to eliminate redundancy of testing.

As a complementary service, GVF may also be able to conduct testing and/or evaluation of earth station products. This GVF service is conducted to ascertain product compliance with any industry-recognised specifications. To read about the Type Approval process, and what information is necessary, please read GVF 107 "Application for GVF Type Approval".

To learn more about engagement with the GVF Product Quality Assurance Programme, contact GVF MRA-WG Co-Chair and Authorised Test Entity, Fulvio Fresia.
