Objectives of the SODaH project
What are the steps in the SODaH project necessary to succeed? The project will include a payload architecture concept as well as the maturation of the components necessary to arrive at this concept. The result will be a demonstrator of the Photonic Modulator, Routing and Digitalization Unit (P_MRD Unit) at Technology Readiness Level 5.
Consolidate concepts of LEO broadband constellations using OISL and RF Up/Down links enabling an optical space data highway with:
- Global coverage (including oceans and low populated areas) with a total capacity of 10 Tbps
- With a baseline of 300 LEO Satellites with OISL and RF beam steering antennas; leading to
- Internet access with 100 Mbps/s and latency below 0.03 sec for end users
- Seamless integration in the 5G ecosystem
