OISL vs RF Links for Satcom Constellations

Optical technologies are increasingly central to the growth of satellite communication constellations. These technologies not only facilitate diverse satellite networks and ground-to-satellite connections, but also promise enhanced anti-interference through space laser communication’s narrow beam property. Bridging the gap between varying optical networks, optical format conversion technologies come into play. Among these, Optical Inter-Satellite Links (OISLs) … Continue reading

Out with the Old, In with the New

Single, older-generation satellites are becoming obsolete, while smaller, lower-orbiting constellations of satellites designed for earth observation and satellite communications (satcom) are becoming the norm. Hundreds of these satellites can be launched by a single rocket, creating interconnected constellations of satellites for earth observation or communications. Essential to the operation of these satellites are spectral filters, … Continue reading
