In one of the final steps before launching its smart terminal to the defence and commercial market, ALL.SPACE has delivered its first smart terminal to SES for testing over its medium earth orbit systems — O3b and O3b mPOWER.
Both commercial and defence enterprises can spin up software-defined links from the ALL.SPACE platform, giving them access to even more bandwidth and improved performance.
Commenting on the development, John Finney, Founder and CEO of ALL.SPACE, said: “Full performance, concurrent connections to multiple satellites in multiple orbits is now a reality. Our multi-link breakthrough is revolutionising the way organisations view and leverage networking solutions. No longer limited to a single link, enterprises can now access multiple, concurrent, full aperture performance links for increased speed and reliability.”
ALL.SPACE concluded successful over-the-air demonstrations in November 2021 and 2022 and is reportedly the only Electronically Scanned Antenna (ESA) to have conducted full OTA tests across every major orbit.
A terminal capable of simultaneously connecting to LEO, GEO and MEO satellites is critical for NATO and US defence customers to deliver data at the tactical edge in a contested space environment.
Scott Sprague, chief commercial officer for ALL.SPACE, is seeing significant excitement for the ALL.SPACE terminal across all verticals at Satellite 2023, but especially with the US Department of Defense.
“Equipping troops in the field and giving them more capabilities and more resiliency and doing it in a form factor that’s never been seen before with multiple full-performance beams is where the real buzz is,” Sprague added.
ALL.SPACE’s fully mil-standard smart terminal range will enable SES to fulfil the needs of both military and commercial customers in taking advantage of its O3b mPOWER system.
“Our smart terminal’s scalability makes it ideal for this purpose, allowing customers to adjust their use of the O3b mPOWER system quickly and seamlessly to meet their changing needs,” Sprague concluded.
