Emergence of Micro-Satellites as Powerful RF Analytics Tools

In the past, satellites under 100 kg in size were largely viewed as experimental — useful for university education and research programs, but not considered to be viable for commercial applications. But the industry and technology are now transitioning into a phase where startups are deploying low-cost constellations of micro-satellites to deliver true value to…

Realtime ground measurement of atmospheric parameters critical to free space optical communication

Space to ground optical communications requires precise knowledge of cloud cover, turbulence, and absorption. This data is critical at several stages: • Survey and selection of potential OGS sites. • During operation of an OGS to measure link availability and bandwidth • To predict atmospheric conditions over the OGS network in order to balance and…
