Abstract
Exploration of planetary surfaces will require a communication architecture that supports operational capabilities in which fixed and mobile assets on the planetary surface can communicate seamlessly and securely. Aeronix understands the issues and believes that it can leverage it knowledge and expertise in its military IEEE-802.16 products towards a space qualified solution. Aeronix is currently developing two technologies that will be directly leveraged. ýý A 5.8GHz 802.16 based radio developed military wireless communication terrestrial applications. The radio is designed to support 20 nodes providing 40Mbps using omni-directional antennas. This is a fully reconfigurable product employing a DSP to configure re-configurable FPGA logic. ýý The development of a smaller 2.4GHz 802.16 based radio for UAV applications. Aeronix is currently in fabricating evaluation units that are approximately 10"3 intended video and audio applications.
