Developed with technology partners, O3b mPOWER Customer Edge Terminals (CET) will combine innovative steerable antenna
technology with functionality spanning modem, networking and edge compute capabilities.
SatixFy UK is a leading provider of baseband modem and electronically steerable antenna
chips, products and solutions that deliver highest performance with radically reduced cost, size, weight and power.
One such application is a metamaterial based Fabry-Perot cavity which is composed of perfectly electrically conducting (PEC) ground and PRS to control the phase variation was used to realize a compact and steerable antenna
with an improvement of gain about 1.
Sofant's high performance miniaturised steerable antenna
will change the performance and user experience of smart phones forever.
The new initiative will provide an exciting alternative to both the expensive flat antenna technology now used in the military and the bulbous mechanically steerable antenna
used on ships and trains.
Arun said: "With the population and the usage of modern communication devices growing by leaps and bounds, the 45-degree beam steerable antenna
will be very helpful - and it's cost effective too
The terminal is equipped with a steerable antenna
that can process secure voice and data transmissions requiring high bandwidth at a rate of 64kbit/s.
A more desirable form of the steerable antenna
is a typical, conventional phased array.
Such a market for DTH satellite TV broadcasting and even some audio, data and telephone services could yet be undercut by the highly experienced European operators, Eutelsat, who are offering to focus the steerable antenna
on their Hotbird 3 satellite over Africa.
Researchers envision a pinlike unit about 1 centimeter long and 1 millimeter wide that incorporates various detectors, a power source, a microprocessor, a microphone, a transmitter and receiver, and a steerable antenna
that resembles a rigid parachute.
