Revolutionary Intelligent Antenna Systems for Space and Ground
This inflatable antenna system enables big data from cubesats and small low cost spacecraft. FreeFall started in the stars with antenna technology based on research in high-frequency radio astronomy at the University of Arizona. The unique inflatable spherical reflector is compact and lightweight and provides a wide field of view for complete coverage. This novel approach allows for a dramatic increase in data rate with minimum mass, power, and complexity which is critical to the space-based communication systems of the 5G world.
Low power and low profile, the FreeStar will outperform today’s antennas by providing extremely rapid 360 degree scanning for device discovery and tracking. Our proprietary dielectric rod technology is unlike anything else on the market. Combined with FreeFall’s advanced “Find and Follow” tracking software, it allows one FreeStar to replace three or four traditional flat panel arrays. Mobile users benefit from consistent signal strength and high data rate.
We move data
Fast, reliable, low-cost access to large volumes of data is one of the most critical capabilities that will define the future.
FreeFall’s unique 3-dimensional phased array antenna technology can provide high data rate communication at virtually any frequency at a fraction of the size and cost of any existing solution.
Fully electronic beam steering and 360 degree coverage eliminates moving parts to dramatically reduce cost and complexity
