Virtual Workshop: CTO Bill Milroy Presenting
“SatCom Terminal Market Overview and Challenges”
During IMS’s virtual workshop “Satellite Systems: A Top-Down Review of Satellites, Space Communication and Hardware,” our CTO Bill Milroy provided a general overview of the GSO- and NGSO-based SatCom terminal markets, including relevant requirements and challenges (bandwidth, beam agility/flexibility, gain and power efficiency, reliability, scan coverage, size/profile, and cost).
Watch the video below where he discusses specific commercial and government X, Ku, and Ka terminal examples, for aeronautical, mobile, and fixed user and gateway applications.
Above all the Noise – Walking the Talk in Satellite Phased Array Markets
March 17, 2021
ThinKom CTO Bill Milroy breaks down the specific “needs” and “wants” across the various satellite phased-array antenna markets…and reveal how ThinKom is “walking the talk” in meeting those demands, TODAY…and tomorrow.
Key design considerations (and trends) relating to profile, power/cooling, efficiency, reliability, scan range, frequency coverage, GSO/NGSO interoperability, and regulatory compliance will be discussed in detail. Applications including Fixed, Mobile, and Aeronautical User Terminals (UT) across Consumer, Enterprise, and Government markets will be described, together with Gateway and Satellite Payload antenna examples.
LEOs, MEOs, GEOs and HEOs. What’s in Your Future?
Sept. 29, 2020
ThinKom CTO Bill Milroy explores how the satellite communications industry stands at the threshold of a major transformation, as new frequency bands open and new lower-orbiting satellite constellations are populated over the next few years. The impact will be felt across all market segments: aeronautical, maritime, land-mobile and enterprise/consumer – not to mention gateway and teleport infrastructure.
