New Space Paradigm
Proposed Constellations will have 100s to 1000s of small Satellites ~$1M/Satellite
Requires High Efficiency RF Transmission due to Size, Weight & Power (SWaP) Constraints
New Space Deployment examples
OneWeb Constellation with ~700 Satellites
SpaceX StarLink Constellation with ~4000 Satellites
AstroComm’s design is appropriate for Low-Cost High-Efficiency SSPA/Transmitter for CubeSats/NanoSats.
AstroComm SSPAs provide the required transmission efficiency: 40% to 75%.
AstroComm design enables low-cost/high-volume assembly line production.
- Consists of any number of 10 x 10 x 10 cm units or designated Us
- Each U has a mass close to 1kg
- 1U, 3U, 6U are the most common sizes.
