SES supports satellite communication links with RPAS using SES Ku-band capacity

Jun 12, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- SES Techcom, a subsidiary of SES S.A., has announced that it has supported satellite communication links with a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System, or RPAS, using SES Ku-band capacity, to establish command and control, Air Traffic Control and Mission data transfer.

The DeSIRE (Demonstration of Satellites enabling the Insertion of RPAS in Europe) initiative, is an ESA-EDA (European Space Agency-European Defence Agency) project in which SES is involved, together with partners such as ThalesAleniaSpace and AT-one (an European Economic Interest Group consisting of Dutch Aerospace Laboratory NLR and German Aerospace Centre DLR).

The initiative follows another ESA study (ESA SINUE) during which SES was already partnering with INDRA, the Spanish information technology and defense systems company, the company said.

Heron-1 RPAS, was deployed using safe and secure Satcoms provided by SES, for maritime surveillance applications offshore Spain, the company added.
