The world’s first integration of a Gentle Constancy (LiFi) module onto a nanosatellite marks a brand new period for LiFi expertise, HomeGrid Discussion board mentioned immediately.
Talking after the profitable launch of the INSPIRE SAT-7 nanosatellite by SpaceX earlier this month in California, HomeGrid Discussion board President Livia Rosu mentioned how the implementation of the SatelLife® module – developed by Oledcomm and LATMOS (Laboratoire Atmosphères, Observations Spatiales) of France – showcases the advantages LiFi expertise can deliver to aerospace operations.
“We want to congratulate HomeGrid Forum member Oledcomm on its main breakthrough in intra-satellite communications and for the primary launch of LiFi G.hn into area,” mentioned Rosu. “By way of using the SatelLife® LiFi module, area missions will now profit from ultra-secure wi-fi connections and ultra-light weight. This marks the following stage of evolution for this expertise, and we’re excited to see the aerospace business put it to use for their very own operations.”
“We’re very proud to announce that our product SatelLife®, the primary LiFi module ever developed for area functions, has been launched into area by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, as embedded into INSPIRE-SAT 7 nanosatellite.” mentioned President and CEO of Oledcomm, Benjamin Azoulay. “The SatelLife® will probably be launched and examined on a number of area flights throughout 2023.”
“We have now now entered a brand new period for LiFi and G.hn,” continued Rosu. “These applied sciences are already enjoying an important position in offering quicker, dependable, and safer connections for all, whether or not deployed in terrestrial buildings or in aerospace. The nanosatellite will use Oledcomm SatelLife® module as demonstrator of the advantages LiFi expertise can deliver to aerospace operations. We’re honored to have Oledcomm and MaxLinear as members of the HomeGrid Discussion board, and we’re excited to see Oledcomm LiFi innovation applications utilizing MaxLinear G.hn chipsets as the muse for additional technological breakthroughs.”
LiFi is a wi-fi communication expertise designed to make use of the sunshine spectrum to transmit knowledge as a substitute of radio waves. Whereas different wi-fi gadgets discovered inside a satellite tv for pc are prone to radio frequency interference, LiFi expertise makes use of mild waves and emitting diodes (LEDs) to ship knowledge by way of the modulation of sunshine at excessive frequencies. LiFi alerts are additionally confined to a single space which supplies higher management over who has entry to the transmission. By limiting entry to approved gadgets and customers solely, LiFi expertise gives safe entry, making it the plain alternative for area missions the place safety is essential.
Positioned in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and designed for Solar and Earth observations associated to local weather change research, the INSPIRE SAT-7 has been geared up with a large number of miniaturized sensors to measure climatic variables and take a look at new technological advances. The LiFi demonstrator presents the aerospace organizations advantages resembling plug-and-play wi-fi integration of the payload, diminished satellite tv for pc set up, diminished interference, enhanced safety, and lighter weight to make sure a profitable launch of spacecrafts.
