Flat panel antenna company Phasor agrees Thales MoU

Flat panel antenna company Phasor has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Thales Alenia Space (TAS) for the development of a software-defined terminal for commercial Ka-band satellite communications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The companies will join forces to combine Phasor’s knowledge of electronically steerable antennas (ESAs) with TAS’s experience in satellite broadband technology across Geostationary, Medium and Low Earth Orbits (GEO, MEO and LEO).

“The signing of this MoU with TAS represents a great opportunity for Phasor to develop a truly differentiated commercial solution with one of the world’s leading players in the satellite communications industry,” said David Helfgott, CEO, Phasor.

“The Phasor team has developed a revolutionary technology and we are very pleased to be working with Thales Alenia Space to achieve their end-goal.”

Phasor’s ESA is solid-state, with no moving parts, so satellite signals are tracked electronically. The antenna can be flat or conformal in design and can be fitted to moving vehicles, including ships. The same technology can be used to support traditional fixed satellite networks (FSS), HTS and Non-Geosynchronous (NGSO) satellite networks.

“Thales Alenia Space has carried out extensive market and technical research on new flat-panel and electronically steered antenna technologies. We have found that Phasor offers a uniquely powerful, scalable and adaptable technology that is very well suited to our needs, and the needs of our customers for enterprise-grade networks,” said Bertrand Maureau, EVP telecommunication at Thales Alenia Space.{/mprestriction}
