CAMBRIDGE, Mass. July 12, 2011 $2.4 million
The award is part of the System F6 program and will support secure real-time communications among satellite modules.
The goal of the F6 program is to replace today’s large satellites with clusters of less costly small modules that carry and share resources over a wireless network. When complete, the program will result in wireless modules clustered in outer space that work as a seamless whole. In this flexible system, it will be easy to replace or add modules without interrupting communications or taking the satellite off-line.
$25 billion Waltham, Mass.
