Analyzing the Growing Role of SMEs and Start-ups in Commercial, Civil and National Security Space
Over the past few months, Space Tech Expo have had the opportunity to work alongside some of the owners of SMEs and start-ups across the USA and Europe to understand how they are working with commercial, civil and national security organizations, and how they have seen the market change from their perspective.
As we move forward together as an industry, we share with you our findings.
Using E-Band for Wideband Satcom: Opportunities and Challenges
The growing volume of data traffic to and from wireless devices calls for high bandwidth to connect users to the internet. Two 5 GHz frequency bands are available in E-Band for commercial very high throughput satellite (VHTS) communication systems. However, adopting these high frequencies makes RF component and subsystem development challenging for the satellite communications (satcom) system as well as the test and measurement (T&M) equipment and setups for working in E-Band. At these frequencies, propagation and atmospheric attenuation require higher power and lower noise figure components for the communication links
