The company will be exhibiting the latest RF distribution product at the event.
As the satellite landscape changes, ETL, which is at the forefront of innovations in ground satellite segment technology, will showcase its Genus RF modular 1U distribution chassis at CABSAT.
This compact and multifunctional ground segment technology has been designed to make the leap to the MEO and LEO constellations possible, in terms of performance and cost. The 1U chassis accommodates multi-functional RF modules in a single habitat, including Falcon frequency converters, Alto and Stingray RF amplifiers over fiber.
Hot-swappable and interchangeable active components are essential for the new ground station architecture, where signal processing requirements are constantly changing and equipment failures must be addressed immediately. Genus’ design enables satellite operators to improve link budgets, reduce rack space requirements, deliver scalability and resiliency, and improve flexibility. This combination of innovative, reliable design and versatility ultimately delivers lower cost to customers, a critical factor in emerging LEO and HTS ground segment designs.
ETL will also showcase the RF Hawk 8 × 8 Matrix. The Extended L-Band Hawk Matrix (500-2450 MHz) is ideal for routing RF signals to LEO and MEO gateways, as well as small HTS ground stations and deployable VSAT terminals. It has a capacity for two 8 × 8 matrix cards – which can be combined (fan-in) or distributive (fan-out) – for uplink and downlink applications. It can be fitted with any combination of cards, depending on the application, but is ideal for smaller gateways with multiple modems and one or two antennas.
Mohamad Barada, RF Systems Architect and Director of International Sales, said: “I look forward to showcasing ETL products to existing and potential customers at CABSAT 2021.”
