Australia’s Department of Defense (MoD) has awarded $1.2 million contract to Saber Astronautics to advance the capability of detecting degraded electronic signals.
Saber Astronautics will be deploying early versions of this technology at the end of 2019.
The application adds capabilities to Australian Defense and also has potential spin-offs for commercial space operations by autonomously protecting the quality of satellite data during solar storms, the company said in a statement last Thursday.
Saber Astronautics chief executive Dr Jason Held said, “Space weather events, such as solar flares, can reduce the quality of these products costing the company money. The ability to detect damage to a signal can give benefits which the consumer will see with clearer pictures and better data."
Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) has been awarded a follow-on contract to continue the second phase of a pilot study program to assess the feasibility of interoperability across multiple satellite communication (SATCOM) systems for the Department of Defense (DoD). Under this award, Hughes will be responsible for prototyping a Flexible Modem Interface (FMI) for military terminals that will enable various military and commercial systems and services to interoperate in the field
