PathFinder Digital works with COTS antenna manufacturers to modify and enhance their MVSATs to meet the specific needs/MIL-SPECs of individual government programs. We ensure compliance with the requirements of the target program and operation compatible with the program’s Concept of Operations (CONOPS). PathFinder designs, fabricates, and integrates these enhancements at the lowest possible price.

PathFinder specializes in the technical management of development programs to create satellite ground terminal solutions to meet the unique and particular needs of each project. We function as your satellite communications engineering and program management team.

Bring PathFinder your unique needs. PathFinder will bring you great solutions.

Value-Added Solutions

PathFinder Digital provides an array of value-added services to government agencies, prime contractors, and antenna system manufacturers.

Prime Contractor Solutions

We have a strong track record on developing custom satcom solutions that balance cost‑effectiveness with precision and durability for our customers. We specialize in working as a trusted partner to Government/Military agencies and prime contractors, by performing the rigorous work involved in identifying and modifying off-the-shelf antenna systems to their unique program specifications (CONOPs).

Antenna Manufacturer Solutions

Antenna manufacturers also benefit by partnering with us. Instead of draining their resources on developing custom solutions that align with CONOPs of major programs, they can focus on their standard product – and let us handle the R&D regarding modifications required to sell their product into major programs. By having us involved, they are more likely to have their product selected by the program.
