12.14.23 -- Why Space Force Is Launching Its Own Satellite Swarm


Why Space Force Is Launching Its Own Satellite Swarm

The U.S. Space Force is revolutionizing satellite deployment, transitioning from costly singular satellites to swarms of smaller, more agile ones for enhanced defense against rival nations' missile threats. Will the switch change the way the USSF does business, or is it simply changing the culture of the agency?


Fast Steering Mirrors For Free Space Optical Communications

Fast fine steering mirrors keep laser beams stabilized and pointed in the right direction, making sure they reach their targets exactly, over thousands of miles.

Implementation Margin Of A Satellite Communication System

Learn how to determine a satellite communication system's implementation margin, defined as signal degradation after traveling through the up and downlink equipment, using an EbNo generator.
