OTTAWA, March 16, 2022 – C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSXV: CMI and OTCQB: CYSNF) a leading global provider of commercial grade mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today that it will be exhibiting its Electronically Steered Phased Array antenna at Satellite 2022, taking place in Washington, DC on March 21-24.
This recently developed in motion Ka-band vehicle mounted antenna is light weight, thin, can track GEO, LEO and MEO constellations while in full motion. The antenna technology is based on small 4×4 transmit and receive modules which are the building blocks for the bigger size antenna and can be conformal to any curved surfaces.
The 1024 elements (1K) antenna has been tested over GEO satellite and proven to work as expected. C-COM plans to do more testing over LEO this year with the existing 1K antenna and later with the 4K antenna. The 4K antenna will undergo extensive mobile satellite testing over the course of the year to validate performance as well as complete environmental compliance as it continues on the path to becoming a commercially available product.
“This new revolutionary antenna technology is a result of 5 years of joint development by C-COM and the University of Waterloo. We expect to develop several different versions of this antenna that can be deployed for use in terrestrial, and other markets such maritime and aeronautical” said Leslie Klein, President, and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
“With the launch of several mega satellite constellations, we expect to see a significant demand for our new ESA antenna for different market verticals” said Bilal Awada, CTO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
