External Antenna Constellation TIM for SAT4M2M’s Disruptive Beam-Forming Antenna successfully held in Houston, Tx, USA.

From February 06th to 08th, 2007, successful meetings were held at NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, Tx, USA, in order to prepare the installation of SAT4M2M’s high-end beam-forming antenna onboard of the International Space Station ISS by use of an EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity).

The brand new antenna is the base for the global available TELDASAT alert data service which earmarks the breakthrough of global IoT applications and services. The whole TELDASAT system shows a variety of ongoing projects – e.g. the “SatApps System and Service” project contracted by ESA where the new IoT-services are evaluated and prepared for test in 2017/2018. In addition, SAT4M2M has just recently been contracted by the European Commission for the series development of the most important ground-based system component, the so-called IoTEE transceiver chip which enables a communication from ground to space
