ESA Backs LimeSDR Mini for Satellite Applications

We are thrilled to announce that the European Space Agency (ESA) have become an official backer of the LimeSDR Mini campaign, in support of developing innovative satellite telecommunications solutions based on Software Defined Radio (SDR), both on ground and in space.

ESA will receive 200 custom LimeSDR Mini packages and we will be working closely with them and Canonical to create an SDR App Store for Satcom. Anticipated applications include satellite connectivity for IoT - for example, Internet-of-Things services via low-cost satellites, such as Cubesats; and also the use of SDR on-board larger satellites.

The move forms part of ESA’s ARTES programme and comes as part of the Space Agency’s drive to speed up satellite communication developments, ensuring that European and Canadian industry remains competitive.

More news on this incredibly exciting partnership to come and stayed tuned for further updates!
