BridgeComm, Inc. has signed a cooperative agreement with Saturn Satellite Networks Inc. (Saturn) — Saturn has introduced their “NationSat” satellites to address the needs of developing economies by employing advanced digital processing to increase flexibility, improve performance and reduce weight, thereby providing disruptive economics for customers.
Saturn is also developing other disruptive communications solutions to provide a much broader range of services to their customers. BridgeComm will support Saturn’s new communications architectures enabling secure, high-speed communications.
BridgeComm will work to provide Saturn with optical communications system design and systems engineering. BridgeComm will also support Saturn in key design parameters, as well as with ground communications services. Finally, Saturn and BridgeComm will jointly work to support both commercial and U.S. Government customer solutions.
BridgeComm CEO Barry A. Matsumori said that, as the first company to bring OWC (Optical Wireless Communications) to the commercial market, the firm is confident that this technology and overall communication systems support will enable Saturn to offer a unique solution, with the added features of being both high-speed and secure. Asa new era of 5G communications is entered, OWC will be integral in bridging the existing connectivity gap, particularly in challenging environments to augment the capabilities already realized using RF technology.”
Saturn CEO Jim Simpson added that Saturn Satellite Networks will provide services that are more closely associated with the terrestrial network nodes in terms of transparency and capabilities. In addition, the performance of the network will surpass that of any existing space system, hence several key partnerships have been established; among them with BridgeComm.
