Game changing technology for satellite communications

Game changing technology for satellite communications
This week’s Satellite 2016 exhibition in Washington DC has seen AtlanTecRF launch its new Ka Band Satellite Simulator. Testing of mobile satellite communications systems has received a further boost with the launch of AtlanTecRF’s LSS range of ‘game-changing’ Satellite Simulators designed for operation in Ka band with optional use in other bands, including Ku and DBS.

Aircraft tracking system could aid disaster relief efforts

Aircraft tracking system could aid disaster relief efforts
A tracking system called HYPERION based on eye-safe lasers could enable aircraft, UAVs and even orbiting satellites to transmit vital data to ground stations more securely, quickly and efficiently. The development of HYPERION has been pioneered by a joint team through Innovate UK's HITEA programme: the University of Oxford with funding from the EPSRC, and Airbus Group Innovations with Innovate UK support.

New satellite data centre hosted at Portsmouth

The University of Portsmouth is to host a centre of excellence for satellite data, which will promote economic growth in the UK’s space sector. The centre will allow the south coast business community to tap into satellite technology that could improve their products and services, for example, developing technology to help robot submarines use live satellite data to inform their route through the ocean – similar to drivers using live traffic updates.

Mission-critical applications require high quality assemblies

Mission-critical applications require high quality assemblies
The aerospace, defence and security markets are especially discerning when procuring electronic solutions from vendors. This is understandable as the mission-critical nature of the products used in these applications means that there is no room for error and that quality is paramount. “OEMs operating in these markets require full traceability and the most rigorous quality standards,” says Chas Shale, Business Manager for cable assemblies, GTK.

Microchip will speed the data transfer in harsh environments

Microchip will speed the data transfer in harsh environments
BAE Systems and Integrated Device Technology has announced a technology for space applications that will transfer greater volumes of data at higher speeds than ever before possible during space missions. BAE Systems’ space-grade microchip, known as the RADNET1848-PS space-grade RapidIO switch, will use the market’s first RapidIO interconnect to speed massive amounts data through a network of radiation-hardened computer systems in outer space.
