Sky and Space Global Completes First Spectrum Monitoring by Nano-Satellite

Sky and Space Global announced that the 3 Diamonds nano-satellite network has successfully completed the world’s first Spectrum Monitoring* operation using nano-satellites.

The 3 Diamonds were used to investigate and identify a network interference operation that was occurring within Europe on a frequency owned by a leading geo-stationary satellite communications operator.

Using its on-board software defined radio capabilities, the 3 Diamonds were able to detect and identify the source of the interference providing valuable information for the satellite operator to remediate the issue.

Spectrum Monitoring is the detection and location of radio frequencies from sources on the ground and is implemented by governments and satellite operators globally as a means of mapping radiofrequency sources, network security/ stabilisation.

The successful Spectrum Monitoring has demonstrated SAS’ technical responsiveness and capabilities in radio frequency monitoring and mapping. This additional capability expands SAS’ initial target market and provides new commercial opportunities for the Company to manage this process on behalf of other satellite operators and government agencies that have observed Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) or wish to map radio-frequencies transmittance.

RFI heavily impacts the quality of service for satellite operators and their customers as it is difficult to identify and source the cause of interference, making it a significant problem and market opportunity for SAS to leverage.

The Board and Management are focused on further commercial applications for the Pearls constellation ahead of the launch in 2019 and will now look to incorporate the technology to map and monitor radio-frequencies into the Peals constellation.
