As part of the collaborative alliance, Phasor will develop a powerful Ka-band, Non-Geosynchronous (NGSO) –ready version of its breakthrough low-profile ESA, scalable to virtually any use-case requirement. Phasor’s LEO-capable antenna technology will enable corporations, governments and other high-end users to access a network offering speeds about 1.5 times faster than terrestrial fiber in combination with high-throughput, ultra-security and very low latency.

LeoSat, which is launching a unique, laser-linked constellation of up to 108 low-earth-orbit (LEO) communications satellites, will provide gigabit-per-second connectivity speeds to solve essential communications challenges in mission-critical communications sectors such as multinational enterprise, financial, oil and gas, maritime, and government networks.

“This landmark agreement between LeoSat and Phasor opens the door to a whole new level of high- powered communications networks capable of unleashing unprecedented connectivity for enterprise network markets around the world,” explained David Helfgott, Phasor CEO. “Phasor’s electronically-steered antenna technology is incredibly versatile and scalable – a perfect match for LeoSat’s constellation in meeting diverse demands for big data and high-speed connectivity.”

“LeoSat is focused on providing game-changing connectivity in the business, government and mobility markets, and Phasor will play a central role in enabling us to accomplish our goal,” said Mark Rigolle, LeoSat CEO. “This strategic agreement with Phasor represents an important step in the delivery of LeoSat’s unique business backbone in space, which gives our customers access to a resilient and future-proof network to deliver unprecedented connectivity and new services.”

Phasor’s very low profile, electronically steerable antenna (ESA) enables the reliable, robust delivery of high-bandwidth services. The antenna is solid-state, with no moving parts, allowing satellite signals to be tracked electronically. The ESA can be flat or conformal in design and can be fitted seamlessly to moving vehicles, enabling a number of applications for maritime and mobility markets. The same technology is very well suited to support traditional fixed satellite networks, High Throughput Satellites, and Non-Geosynchronous satellite networks. Phasor’s modular antenna architecture allows the system to be scaled to virtually any use-case requirement, fixed or mobile. ENDS
