Goal of the SODaH project
The SODaH project aims to demonstrate a key component that allows the satellites in a constellation to direct, send and receive all those data signals in an efficient, robust and cost-effective way. This will truly allow future satellite constellations to provide internet to every citizen in Europe, as well as improve the internet connections for ships and planes.
How does SODaH do this?
SODaH prepares next generation of constellation satellites plans to consolidate concepts of LEO broadband constellations using Optical Inter Satellite Links and RadioFrequency Up/Down links enabling an optical space data highway and demonstrate the feasibility of a “Software Defined Optical Highway”.
SODaH aims at developing and making a sufficiently mature concept of Photonic Modulation, Routing and Digitalization Unit that enable a smart and advanced used of an OISL interconnected satellites network.
