Isotropic Systems completes LEO testing on multi-orbit antenna with Telesat

Isotropic Systems reports that it has concluded field tests demonstrating its new terminal ability to track and establish a communications link with a Telesat Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite, ahead of the multi-link terminal’s expected launch later this year.

The tests were conducted live, over-the-air, with Telesat at its Allan Park Teleport in Ontario, Canada. Isotropic’s terminal tracked and passed bi-directional traffic to Telesat’s Phase 1 LEO satellite whilst simultaneously connected to a Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellite link, demonstrating its multi-orbit, multi-link capabilities.

The antenna technology is designed to allow simultaneous connections to multiple satellites in different orbits, to allow users to optimise their satellite capacity and network uptime. With the initial testing completed, Isotropic says it aims to officially launch later this year and will target a range of sectors, including maritime, aeronautical, enterprise, government and telecoms.

“This test shows the potential of our terminal to enable the full convergence of satellite systems from the ground across multiple-orbits and meshing networks together without compromising the user-end experience. We look forward to testing our products in preparation for our product launch this year. Isotropic Systems has exciting times ahead,” said John Finney, Founder and CEO of Isotropic Systems.
