Analytical Space is developing a LEO-based hybrid RF-optical data-relay network to augment satellite communications capabilities. Such a network would increase the amount of remote sensing data that can be offloaded and reduce latency from image acquisition to terrestrial reception and analysis. It accomplishes this by forwarding the data through a relay network of ASI satellites for downlink to an available and secure ground location. The AFWERX Phase II trial will seek to adapt ASI's commercial capability to meet the needs of the Air Force customer. In doing so we believe those efforts will overlap with the company's commercial efforts. The trial will explore multi-band relay, augmentation of data security, and field-testing optical communications. To accomplish this trial, ASI will work with an undisclosed AF customer on key subsystem demonstrations, including, but not limited to, developing software for an SDR on flexible client receive. The scope of work will include testing series that will gradually move from bench-top into more mature and advanced environments (which may include a test or test series with an existing ASI space asset).
