OUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO SATELLITE PROGRAMS

G/ATOR RADAR


G/ATOR (Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar is a highly mobile multi-mission radar system designed to fully support worldwide expeditionary requirements. Northrop Crumman's AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR system provides multi-faceted detection and tracking capabilities to enable engagement of a wide range of hostile threats as well as offers robust air traffic control capabilities to ensure the safety of Marines worldwide. We provided 65" long double sided flex circuits for the radar.
ICO COMMUNICATION SATELLITE


The ICO Communication Satellites are used in a global satellite-based mobile communication system that offers digital data and voice services as well as the satellite equivalent of third generation (3G) wireless services, including wireless internet and other packet-data services. We provided 8-14 layer rigid-flex parts for the satellite system.
HS 601 COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE


The HS 601 was introduced to meet anticipated requirements for high-power multiple payload satellites for such applications as direct television broadcasting to small receiving antennas, very small aperture terminals for private business networks, and mobile communications. We provided the fabrication and assembly of multiple 6-14 layer, rigid and rigid PWB's for the satellite system.
IRIDIUM


The Iridium Satellite Program provides global satellite voice and data solutions with complete coverage of the earth. Iridium delivers essential communication services to and from remote areas where no other form on communication is available. The Iridium constellation consists of 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO), cross linked satellites. We provided 4 and 8 layer rigid flex parts for Iridium.
SBIRS LOW


The SBIRS LOW program is a constellation of satellites capable of performing missile defense, missle tracking, technical intelligence and battle space characterization in Low Earth orbit. We provided eighteen 4 to 7 layer unique constantan rigid-flex pwb's for the SBIRS LOW system.
WIDEBAND GAPFILLER SATELLITE


The Wideband Gapfiller Satellite platform that will be used in a unique new broadband satellite network to provide high-bandwidth and high-speed communications for broadband and multi-media applications to North America. The satellites will provide bandwidth-on-demand and will operate exclusively in the Ka-band spectrum. We provided 5-layer rigid flex parts for the program.
