Now that Ka Band is firmly established and has enabled the deployment of very successful satellites with greater than 100 gigabyte capacity, it is time for exploring higher frequencies to permit larger capacity satellites to serve more customers.. Many areas of the world are still without affordable communications and more spectrum is needed to serve them.. This spectrum expansion will be accomplished by characterizing the Q and V bands using the recently launched Alphasat, which will enable the commercial communications satellite industry to move forward..

  • Title: 20th Ka Conference
    Descriptive info: About KA Conference.. The conference, originally dedicated to the diffusion of information on all aspects of satellite communications at 20-30 GHz and higher frequencies, has over the years been expanded to include satellite broadband communications, satellite-aided navigation, and earth observation.. Conceived in 1993, and held for the first time in 1995, the Conference was created to publicize the achievements of the Italsat and ACTS satellites in opening the Ka frequency band for use in satellite communications.. The Conference was instrumental in publicizing the success of both satellites in demonstrating the usefulness of Ka-band through novel system approaches including digital communications, on demand rain compensation, hopping spot beams, on board switching, integrated services, demand-assigned channels, development of flight and ground  ...   scope to reflect applications that provide other services that benefit mankind and that are unique to satellites, such as mobile broadband communications, satellite-aided navigation, and earth observation.. These applications have proven their value in improving our everyday life, and hold the promise for many more enhancements to the existing systems on which we rely daily.. This change in direction has prompted the Italian Space Agency to use the Conference as a means of publicizing its space activities and to call it "a conference of the Italian Space Agency".. The conference is held annually under the auspices of ASI, CRC, DLR, ESA, NASA, NICT, and with the support of several communications satellite manufacturers and service providers from around the world..

  • Title: 20th Ka Conference
    Descriptive info: Call For Papers.. The Ka Band Utilization Conference was founded in 1995 to publicize the accomplishments of Italsat, ACTS and ETS VI, which had been designed to explore the use of Ka Band for commercial purposes.. Now that Ka Band has enabled the construction of very successful commercial 100 plus gigabyte satellites, it is time for exploring higher frequencies to permit even larger capacity payloads.. Our late collaborator Professor Aldo Paraboni of Polytechnic of Milan, after his successful efforts at Ka Band, anticipating this need, had proposed and planned in detail experiments at the Q and V bands, as the natural expansion of a life dedicated to exploring higher frequencies for use by satellites.. The proposed experiments have  ...   their use in the design and implementation of new systems, and to further increase the capacity of Ka Band satellites by using the Q band for the feeder links, thus making available more spectrum for the user terminals.. The Conference will continue to document the many advances being made in the satellite field, as new technologies and applications continue to be developed in Communications, Navigation, Earth Observation, and Deep Space Exploration.. The Conference is thus soliciting papers in all areas of activity pertaining to the following satellite fields:.. Telecommunications.. Systems & Payloads.. Applications.. Protocols.. Components.. Propagation.. Optical Communications.. Navigation.. Components.. Earth Observation.. Sensors.. Ground Equipment.. Systems.. Gateways.. User Terminals.. Special Topics.. Market Assessment.. Risk Management.. Legal & Insurance Issues..
