Photo-Digital Channelizer for Flexible Digital High Throughput Satellites

Project description

Novel photonics technologies will boost the throughput of high-throughput satellites

Photonics technologies have revolutionised communications on the ground, exponentially expanding bandwidth by harnessing the unique properties of photons with innovative technologies to manipulate them. They are behind the foundations that support next-generation edge connectivity for everything from cell phones that do not lose their signals when entering a building to self-driving cars responsive in real time. High-throughput satellites are addressing the need for a similar expansion of data traffic at the satellite level, but they currently rely primarily on conventional radio-frequency equipment. The EU-funded PhLEXSAT project is advancing the readiness of several important photonics technologies supporting space-grade photonics hardware for future Terabit/s communication satellites.
