Ball Aerospace has successfully completed the first communication demonstration between Telesat’s LEO Phase 1 satellite and Ball’s fully electronically-steered flat panel antenna at Telesat’s Allan Park ground station in Ontario, Canada. Ball and Telesat are collaborating on the development of satellite communication (SATCOM) terminals based on Ball’s advanced antenna technology.As part of the demonstration, Ball’s electronically-steered antenna tracked and communicated with the Telesat LEO Phase 1 satellite and captured real-time video data, which showcased the low latency characteristics of the Telesat LEO system. Electronically-steered flat panel antennas enable non-stationary satellite tracking and support quick and seamless switching between satellites, which is necessary for large LEO constellations. In addition, electronically-steered antennas have enhanced reliability due to no moving parts, are easy to install and may be manufactured in volume at low cost.Telesat’s LEO Phase 1 satellite was launched in January 2018 and provides an in-orbit platform for the development of Telesat’s high-performance global constellation of low earth orbit satellites that will offer low latency high throughput data services that are truly competitive with terrestrial networks. End-user terminals capable of tracking LEO satellites, handing off between beams and between satellites, and operating maintenance-free in remote locations will further enhance the Telesat LEO value proposition.Ball Aerospace has five decades of heritage delivering electronically-steered flat panel, or phased array, antenna solutions, with two decades of experience delivering planar phased array terminals. Ball is developing architectures that can scale to high-volume, low-cost production using standard commercial processes and an established supply chain. Ball’s mature, low-cost antenna technology will enable lower lifecycle costs for the emerging LEO SATCOM market and other commercial applications such as aircraft in-flight connectivity and 5G data services.

Matt Loede CLEVELAND – The Indians had somewhat of a frustrating day at Progressive Field with a number of chances to top the rival Chicago White Sox and break their short three-game losing streak from the weekend, but seemed to always shoot themselves in the foot.Finally with the help of an old friend, they were able to get the job done in 10 innings, as Michael Brantley drove in the game-winning run with a double to left to score Francisco Lindor to give the Tribe the 2-1 win.The win puts them at 4-3 on the season, and bails them out after they had multiple chances to win the game earlier but a couple key double plays killed their chances.Here’s our three takeaways from an emotionally draining opener which saw the Tribe get their AL Championship Rings earlier in the day, and finally get out of dodge with a hard fought win.

FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Joint Board of Fisheries and Game meeting has rescheduled for January 14, 2015 to develop a list of qualified persons for the governor to consider for the Alaska Department of Fish & Game commissioner. That meeting will begin in Juneau at 8:30 am on January 14, 2015. Previously meetings had been scheduled in Anchorage and Juneau for December 29 but due to a low number of applicants, Glenn Haight with the department said that it made more sense to just have one meeting. The meeting has also added a live internet audio stream which can be found at the Joint Board website along with additional information about the meeting. Among the candidates is local drifter Roland Maw who was appointed to Gov. Bill Walker’s transition team subcommittee to represent fisheries in November. Haight: “And so each of the boards have provided committee members, three of them, and they will be meeting to review the candidates they’ve received.” Public comments are being accepted by fax and email until 5:00 pm Friday, January 8, 2015. He is up against Sam Cotten who was named interim Fish and Game commissioner on the same day Walker took the oath of office.
