QubeFlex CubeSat/SmallSat Transceiver/Modem

QubeFlex CubeSat/SmallSat Transceiver/Modem


The QubeFlex™ software-defined modem has been designed for the low-earth orbit CubeSat and smallsat markets. Commercial applications demand fast time to market and reliable comms. QubeFlex™, as part of our end-to end comms solution, provides a professional off-the-shelf solution suited to the current and future needs of CubeSat users. The QubeFlex™ supports Intelsat, CCSDS telemetry and other common space transmission and packet standards. Forward error correction ensures data is protected against transmission loss. High data rates ensure maximum data can be received on each satellite pass. The QubeFlex™ demodulator will acquire and remain locked to the signal even when faced with the largest Doppler frequency shifts causedby fast-moving low-earth orbit satellites. Demodulator output is formatted for convenient onward computer processing and storage. QubeFlex™ is a highly flexible, configurable platform allowing the user to only pay for the functionality they need.
