ISIS TXS High Data Rate S-Band Transmitter

Price on request

The ISIS High Data-rate S-band Transmitter is a CubeSat compatible Transmitter designed to meet the needs of high data-rate downlinks of up to 3.4 Mbps (information bit-rate at CCSDS transfer frame level). The transmitter can be used for both TT&C or PDT downlinks. The S-band transmitter is as robust as it is flexible, implementing CCSDS as datalink layer protocol and allowing in-flight configuration of data-rate and RF output power.
