Intellian demonstrates flat panel user terminal and confirms production for OneWeb
Intellian and OneWeb have announced the success of their joint over-the-air demonstration using Intellian’s flat panel technology.
At Intellian’s Advanced Development Center (ADC) in Maryland, the demonstration showcased an integrated, small form-factor Electronically Scanned Array (ESA) user terminal, operating in a live commercial network environment facilitated by OneWeb. The Intellian ESA user terminal achieved the maximum download and upload speeds supported by the OneWeb system in full duplex mode operation, with seamless beam hand-overs and satellite hand-overs.
This milestone validates Intellian’s innovative core technologies ahead of production in Q4 2023. Intellian’s ESA user terminal production will take place at their state-of-the-art factory, providing a streamlined process with exceptional product value, quality, diversity, and scalability.
The highly specialized and experienced team at Intellian helped to deliver and deploy the very first OneWeb commercial service user terminals at rapid speed. With a unique and innovative technology and strategy, Intellian brings to market a diverse portfolio of ESA user terminals designed to address user requirements across Enterprise, Land Mobility, Military, Government and Maritime at unparalleled speed.
Eric Sung, President and CEO Intellian Technologies Inc, said: "Our strategic partnership with OneWeb has been further strengthened as we once again achieve another fantastic milestone together. This over-the-air demonstration validates the strength of our ESA technology and brings us one step closer to launching truly integrated products that all of OneWeb’s commercial customers can benefit from. With our new manufacturing campus also launched in Korea during 2022, we can deliver incredible scale and quality assurance to our partners.”
Massi Ladovaz, Chief Technology Officer at OneWeb, added: “Our partnership and collaboration with Intellian continues to grow and we are excited about the future potential of today’s demonstration.
