WORK Microwave Highlights World-Class Virtual And Optical Ground Stations At IBC 2022

WORK Microwave, a European manufacturer of advanced RF technology, will showcase its world-class satellite ground segment solutions at IBC 2022.

WORK Microwave provides solutions that transform space and satellite communication deployments, enabling greater flexibility, scalability, sustainability, and more - solutions on display will include:

Optimize Ground Segment Operations With a Virtual Solution
The Virtual Ground Station (VGS) solution is a state-of-the-art ground station architecture based on digitalized RF signals over IP in accordance with the DIFI standard and wideband signal processing on a cloud platform by a virtualized software modem. VGS brings high flexibility, scalability, efficiency, and “switchability” to ground segment operations by using IP networks that allow flexible composition of the antenna, processing, and operations sides. By supporting as-a-service business models, including ground-station-as-a-service and software-as-a-service, VGS enables operators to pay per use and reduce their hardware investments. Additionally, VGS allows access from anywhere to any digitized antenna worldwide for satellite and space communication.

Space-to-Ground Communication Goes Optical With Digital Optical Ground Station
WORK Microwave will showcase its Digital Optical Ground Station (DOG) suite of products designed to overcome bandwidth limits and RF spectrum regulatory challenges with free space optical communication using CCSDS and SDA standards. Based on the company’s well-established A-Series platform, DOG is perfect for LEO, GEO, and lunar missions. Leveraging a multi-mission approach, DOG combines the optimal combination of hardware and software for all scenarios, empowering operators to detect and process optical communication from and to space terminals such as CubeLCT, T-OSIRIS, OPTEL-µ, or CAT.
