Seamless Communications

The Satellite Applications Catapult has core competencies in satellite systems design, simulation and implementation of communications devices. We work with industry and academia to ensure that UK businesses are able to take advantage of new innovations in the satellite communication and mobile network arena.

Why Seamless Communication Matters

The key to making applications commercial effective is timely acquisition of data and timely delivery of information to customers. The continuing trend towards low-cost, highly integrated communication devices is generating significant demand and opportunities for new applications in the terrestrial wireless domain.

Strategic Initiatives

The key strategic initiatives for our satellite communications team are:

  1. Support the development of integrated low-cost satellite communications devices.
  2. Influence the direction of the terrestrial Machine-2-Machine and 5G standards for accommodation of satellite waveforms and systems.

We receive funding for these activities through the European Commission, European Space Agency (ESA) and UK national programmes.
