Viasat’s New Large-Aperture Space-to-Ground Communication Antennas Ready to Support Lunar, Cislunar, Deep Space and DoD Missions
The new class of full-motion multi-band antennas, which range from 19.7 to 24.0 meters in diameter, offer revolutionary capability enhancements when compared to other legacy solutions that still use decades old technology.
- Full-motion high-dynamic pedestal with precise tracking that will support current and future multi-orbit missions from low earth orbit (LEO) to Lunar and beyond;
- An integrated radio frequency (RF) architecture paired with precision reflector surface accuracy to enable enhanced operation from L-band to above Ka-band;
- Robust suite of software leveraging 20 years of delivering the highest levels of cyber security standards;
- RF designs that support use of extremely high-power amplifiers in multiple bands enabling advanced mission requirements; and
- Advanced high-rate modems that will support emerging industry standard interfaces and software defined radio (SDR) frameworks to enable future virtualized architectures.
“There is tremendous interest in earth observation, defense-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and deep space/lunar link communications, which our latest class of full-motion large-aperture antennas were built for,” said
