10:15 |  High Speed Protected Communication Links on Future Space Systems

Speaker: Mr Scott Forney, President of General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems, General Atomics

To provide persistent capabilities, future government and commercial space systems are developing architectures that include constellations of small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO). To meet requirements, constant real time secure communications is required. Optical intersatellite links (OISL) offer advantages over radio frequency (RF) systems and the technology has sufficiently advanced to assure reliable and affordable capability. Beyond LEO, high capacity communication between our space systems near the Moon and out to Mars, is also best accomplished using OISL capabilities.
