The spaceport idea even got a plug from astronaut Gene Cernan, a director and investor in MicroSat
Our new microsat
technology is ideal for C2 and ISR missions in all airborne as well as maritime and land environments, combining patented waveform design on a proven, and common platform for all applications -- unlike other single-use solutions.
Our strategy of delivering advanced FEA technology with improved usability is key to enabling small to mid-size companies such as MicroSat
Systems to accelerate the development of innovative products," stated Ken Short, vice president, SIMULIA strategy and marketing, Dassault Syst[c]mes.
I look forward to showcasing how Hughes' MicroSat
waveform concept will revolutionize the tactical satellite communications market by delivering a lightweight VSAT and mobility antenna that is advanced, economical and practical for tactical mobility platforms.
SpaceDev's success in obtaining contracts to develop microsats
and to conduct feasibility studies for multiple microsats
and nanosats, as well as research commissioned by the California Space Authority, indicate that the demand for SpaceDev's type of low cost high performance space vehicles is increasing," concluded Benson.
SpaceDev (OTCBB: SPDV) announced a new high performance microsatellite product program named the SpaceDev Modular Microsat
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsat
