These contracts range from small service and upgrade tasks for a large number of dispersed terminals, to the supply and/or installation of medium to large antennas anywhere in Australia and its territories.
In 1998 ASCS completed the software upgrade of more that 100 terminals for Project Aurora to facilitate the digitalisation of the Optus B series satellites. Before that the company programmed, supplied and installed new micro-processors for 4,500 B MAC satellite decoders and supplied and installed terminals for a rural health network and a regional and remote broadcasting network for Imparja. In addition ASCS has installed a 7m antenna for NWS Channel 9 and sub-contracted for the erection of two 10m and two 22m antennas at the joint defence facility at Pine Gap. The company has also supplied and installed numerous other 3m to 13m antennas around Australia. Off shore, ASCS has supplied specially configured L Band terminals to INTERFET and the UN in East Timor and has installed a 4.6m earth station for the Department of Defence on Cocos Island.
