Big Data from Small Spacecraft

  • GAIN – 35 dB at X-band, up to 45 dB at Ka-band

  • Electronic steering and ultra-wide FOV all high gain link

    • Commercial Earth imaging

    • Data relay (cell, internet, etc.)

    • Defense and surveillance

    • Science and education

Higher Data Rates

100-1000x higher data rates with no increase in mass or power

Big Data

Big data from small spacecraft without increasing mass or power

Video

High-rate data and video from space

Imaging on Your Device

Enables high-rate data and video from space directly to a soldier’s hand-held device

Connectivity

Electronic steering maintains the link

Automatic

No need for active pointing of antenna or spacecraft

Military

  • Orders of magnitude increase in data downlink

  • 1 m antenna plus support systems occupy 1.25U – compatible with 3U or 6U Cubesats (larger apertures available)

  • Gain ~ 35 dB at X-band, up to 45 dB at Ka-band

  • Electronic steering and ultra-wide FOV allow extended high-gain link to a fixed or mobile station or direct for imaging
