RF engineering is an indispensable part of human space activity. In both the commercial and government spheres, radio frequency signals serve as the backbone of all communication systems between spacecraft, satellites and their control centers on Earth, as well as critical satellite navigation and telecommunications infrastructure used on the surface.
I'm about to take you on a journey through the deep, dark depths of outer space. Why? So you can get a feel for what crystal oscillators and resonators must endure while in the infinite world of darkness and wonder! First, you'll need to learn the important differences between crystal oscillators and resonators. After your mission is complete, you'll begin your journey to the depths of outer space from a resonator and oscillator perspective and learn their different roles and applications in space.
Enjoy your ride!
Traditional Use of Cube Satellites
The outer atmosphere around Earth contains more than a 100 satellites that are shaped like Rubik's cubes but are a bit larger. Closely packed with various instruments, these satellites have been launched at frequent intervals since 2013.
Access to space is becoming democratized
Airplane WI-FI is Worse than Airplane Food
Have you ever been on a plane with low quality Wi-Fi? You just want to post a picture from 40,000 feet, but you can’t because of the low speed connection. Bliley technologies has been working with their customers to ensure this is never a problem on their flights again.
Bliley’s Poseidon series OCXO features the world's lowest phase noise performance when subjected to dynamic random vibration conditions. Designed for demanding vibration environments the Acceleration Sensitivity is as low as 0.007 PPB/G for all 3 axis of vibration. For applications requiring superior noise performance out to 1MHz offset, Poseidon is well suited for: Ground Mobile, Airborne, and Shipboard environments.
