August 7, 2018 - 21st Century Data Distribution Network Exclusively for Space to Earth Data. Global Direct Access Improves Margin by Lowering Costs. Services Near Earth, Cislunar, and Deep Space Data Platforms Enhanced Security.
Xenesis, ATLAS Space Operations, and Laser Light Communications have joined forces in a Service-Level Solution - Empower Space Alliance. Empower Space will provide a turnkey direct optical data distribution service from spacecraft to customer locations, worldwide.
Empower Space intends to serve LEO, MEO, GEO, Cislunar, and Deep Space capability with standardized interoperability, robust data capacity and unprecedented access to customer locations worldwide.
Space data platforms will now have a choice between relying on legacy radio frequency transmission and distribution, or high capacity and low cost all optical "direct delivery" of their data to its ultimate distribution...on a single network.
The NewSpace sector is expanding rapidly into creative, more cost-effective business models. These models are focused primarily on delivering space-based services, such as imagery, communications, content, civil science, and government data in a "New Way" = smaller, cheaper and more capable satellite platforms.
Earth Observation owner/operators are looking for greater efficiencies and enhanced margins by reducing CAPEX/OPEX per imagery sold. In addition, GEO owner/operators have begun to consider new business models based on their legacy satellite designs, to accommodate new services and markets.
Empower Space brings together an All Optical Space to Earth data distribution network which will Empower space data platforms to connect to their ultimate destinations more cost-effectively, and efficiently.
Empower Space - through its Founder/Partners - intends to offer a licensable 10-100Gbps optical unit - depending on the customer requirement - for integration into planned space platforms in the Near Earth, Cislunar, and Deep Space markets.
Xenesis's NASA / JPL licensed optical unit will Empower owner/operators to distribute their space-originated products - communications, imagery, content, navigation - to over 100 Points of Presence on the Earth at significantly lower cost for SWaP and data distribution services.
Earth-wide distribution of the customer's data will be by means of Laser Light's global, hybrid all optical MEO satellite constellation, or directly to Laser Light's 100 dispersed optical ground nodes, interconnected with its Software-Defined global terrestrial fiber.
Empower Space customer data, will be managed and monitored, "end-to-end", by ATLAS Space from the customer satellite platform to the data's ultimate destination, entirely on the Empower Space Alliance network.
Consequently, the advantage Empower Space brings to its customers are the potential benefits of optical data transmission and the prospect of improved margins derived by SWaP savings, unrestricted availability, enhanced security, and reduced distribution costs.
Telesat signs consortium deal with Thales and SSL new LEO constellation
Ottawa, Canada (SPX) Aug 03, 2018
Telesat following a rigorous process of leading satellite manufacturing companies has entered into a contract with the consortium of Thales Alenia Space and Maxar Technologies, the owner of SSL, to further develop system designs for Telesat's LEO constellation. The Thales Alenia Space-Maxar consortium, working in close cooperation with Telesat, submitted a highly innovative approach for maximizing the performance and service capabilities of Telesat's LEO constellation architecture. Thales Al ... read more
