Building on Pinkmatter’s legacy of managing customer ground stations, we now offer antenna hosting at our own site in Pretoria, South Africa.

Our antenna hosting site is located on the outskirts east of Pretoria, within a 40-minute drive from Johannesburg International Airport. Pretoria’s ideal weather conditions include moderate temperatures, low winds, and zero snowfall. We provide secure facilities with patrolling guards and CCTV cameras.

Existing and scalable backup power infrastructure, consisting of solar, UPS and a generator, ensures independence from the national grid. High speed internet is available.

Pinkmatter specialises in ground segment software systems. With our FarEarth suite of software, we can optionally provide a full ground station solution to our hosting customers.
