Abstract
V-band wireless communications can replace cables that connect payload launch delivery systems with the added advantages of small size, low weight, and noise mitigation. Current implementations of V-band wireless links are severely impaired by challenges such as shadowing. MaXentric’s 60 GHz VIAS system is an effective method that overcomes such challenges and offers to a drop-in solution for launch vehicles that is transparent to clients that rely on a wire-based communication system. The VIAS system is not limited by existing launch vehicle communication architectures, since the transceiver is a stand-alone RF front-end, and can be used to implement new communication protocols.
