Isotropic Systems Hits Critical Performance Milestone
Isotropic Systems has successfully demonstrated bi-directional high-speed connectivity with a Ka-broadband satellite. The company believes this demonstration proves its optical beam-forming technology is capable of all electronic scanning and tracking well beyond the conventional performance of flat panel antennas and conventional phased array technology, measured in scanning range, scan performance and corresponding throughput. The company announced the successful demo, Nov. 13.
The tests included web browsing, video downloads, video streaming, two-way video calls, online gaming, VoIP, e-mail and additional WAN application testing completed from Isotropic Systems’ state-of-the-art laboratory at the InnovateUK Satellite Catapult facility, utilising capacity from Avanti’s Hylas-4 Ka-band satellite.
“This is the first of many tests that Isotropic Systems will make over the air as we move towards our first commercially available products. We are thrilled to have conducted this momentous first step. Our engineering team has worked tirelessly with the support of our strategic customers to accomplish today’s important test,” said John Finney, founder and CEO of Isotropic Systems.
