Isotropic Systems' Terminal Completes Simultaneous, Full Performance, Multi-Link Trials Across All Orbits

Reading time ( words)

Isotropic Systems, the leading multi-link satellite ground terminal provider, announces that it has completed all tests demonstrating that its multi-link terminal can connect to satellites in LEO, MEO and GEO orbits, simultaneously. The tests ensured continuous, full aperture performance across all links to multiple orbits, enabling full multiplication and aggregation of data connectivity.

This announcement follows a series of field tests in various situations, including high-speed links with LEO satellites and simultaneous connections between MEO and GEO satellites for both commercial and military scenarios.  The tests with the U.S. Army were part of the U.S. Air Force's innovative Defense Experimentation Using Commercial Space Internet (DEUCSI) program and demonstrated the terminal's unique abilities to maintain connectivity under challenging Military conditions. Separate tests with Telesat and SES confirmed the terminals' effectiveness across all satellite orbits with a range of civil and commercial applications.  With the technology now proven, Isotropic Systems is expected to unlock unparalleled connectivity and significant enterprise opportunities for end-users.

To date, it has only been possible to connect to a single satellite at a time, obstructing users from harnessing the full capabilities of satellites. Never achieved before and with the potential to reshape the communications industry, Isotropic Systems' terminal simultaneously connects to different satellites in separate orbits with a single antenna, without any comprise in the performance of each link. Re-defining the global satellite ecosystems, the multi-beam antenna offers limitless connectivity across a range of sectors, including government, defence, maritime, enterprise and aerospace.

John Finney, Isotropic Systems Founder and CEO, said: "Our next-gen multi-beam antenna has shown its full potential to unlock a new age of multi-orbit connectivity. With thousands of satellite constellations launching in the coming years, our technology is critical to unlocking the full benefits of the enhanced broadband connectivity." 

"We have completed various rigorous tests on the defence front by demonstrating our multi-beam and orbit capabilities with the U.S. Army and have also demonstrated unique multi-orbit connectivity alongside Telesat, SES and others."

"We are thrilled to provide the unprecedented capability of meshing networks without comprising efficiency, preparing ourselves for our product launch later this year."

There is plenty of evidence that the American PCB industry is going through a revitalization. While a few new companies are being established, others are being rejuvenated as investors gain more interest and confidence in domestic PCB companies. I reached out to Prashant Patel, owner and president of Alpha Circuit I LLC in the greater Chicago area. I wanted to hear about his investment and the unique path he took to owning a PCB shop.

James Webb Space Telescope en Route to Discover Origins of the Universe, Study Exoplanets

01/06/2022 | Thales
A joint program between NASA and its counterparts in Europe (ESA) and Canada (CSA), Webb will observe the beginnings of our Universe by reaching back in time to just a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. It will also observe exoplanets – planets outside the Solar System – that are comparable to our own, as well as the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. The ultimate aim of this successor to the iconic Hubble space telescope is to discover galaxies that reach back to the relative beginnings of the Universe. This state-of-the-art time machine is expected to revolutionize all aspects of modern astronomy. It will unveil the hidden side of the Universe, namely stars enveloped in clouds of dust, molecules in the atmosphere of other worlds, and the light issuing from the first stars and galaxies.
