SES Techcom S.A. Key Developments
SES Techcom to Support Aircraft Tracking from Space
May 14 13
SES Techcom announced the launch of the first space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) system to monitor air traffic around the globe. The ADS-B system is operating on the Proba V satellite of the European Space Agency. Proba V was successfully orbited on May 6, 2013, on board Vega, Europe's small-satellite launch vehicle, during its second successful launch. SES Techcom and DLR German Aerospace Center have provided an instrument that detects ADS-B signals emitted by aircraft from space and a ground solution for data processing and system performance management. In the frame of the project, SES Techcom developed and implemented the ground data processing center, which retrieves, processes, analyses and stores all ADS-B data received from the Proba V satellite. On-orbit ADS-B instruments with the potential for worldwide coverage can detect and track aircraft, especially in areas not covered by ground-based radar, such as oceans or polar regions. Aircraft fitted with ADS-B broadcast their position, altitude, velocity and other measurements on an automatic basis every second or so. With ADS-B transmissions, aircraft remain continuously visible not only to ground controllers but also to other suitably equipped planes. Proba V will demonstrate how many aircraft of which type can be observed worldwide -- different-sized aircraft are assigned ADB-S systems with different signal strengths. The ADS-B system is being phased in on a worldwide basis; all aircraft entering European airspace will to be equipped with it by 2015. The operation of the ADS-B payload is under the responsibility of DLR German Aerospace Center, while SES Techcom is in charge of the validation of the received ADS-B data.
SES TechCom to Deliver Satellite Communications Infrastructure and Services to Galileo
Mar 7 13
SES S.A. announced that it has signed, through its service company SES TechCom, a contract with BT to provide satellite communications services for the Galileo Data Dissemination Network (GDDN) to support the Galileo Operator Spaceopal. The agreement includes the deployment, maintenance and support of Satcom ground infrastructure at various remote locations around the world including Antarctica, the provision of satellite capacity, and the monitoring and control of the GDDN satellite network.
SES TechCom Signs Contract to Furnish Important Parts of the Ground Segment for European Data Relay System
Jun 26 12
SES TechCom announced that it has signed contracts with Astrium and DLR at the German Space Operations Center in Oberpfaffenhofen to furnish important parts of the ground segment for the European Data Relay System (EDRS). Within the scope of EDRS, SES TechCom will supply four satellite control stations and data reception facilities to be built on the premises of the earth stations in Weilheim (DLR), Redu (Belgium) and Harwell (UK). SES TechCom will also ensure the operability of the satellite control station in Redu on behalf of DLR. All installations provided by SES TechCom will work in the so-called Ka frequency band, which allows for the transfer, storage and terrestrial relay of very high quantities of data in the gigabit range. EDRS will utilize two geostationary relay satellites that, due to their fixed position in space, will record the high-rate communications data of lower-flying earth observation satellites and transmit this data without significant time delays to Earth. Therefore, the observation satellites are no longer tied to the short contact times during their flight over the respective earth stations, as has been the case up to now. Significantly greater quantities of data can be transferred from space to Earth more quickly and over a longer period of time. Within the scope of EDRS, optical laser technology for data transfer is planned to be put into operation for the first time. Small laser communication terminals will be employed that can transfer up to 1.8 gigabit of data over a distance of 45,000 kilometers. That's the equivalent of about 100,000 printed A4 pages per second.
