CubeSat S-Band Transmitter

CubeSat S-Band Transmitter

This S-Band transmitter is designed by NanoAvionics’ partner IQ-Wireless to enable small satellite missions that require high data throughput with a maximum data rate of 1 Mb/s.

In addition, the S-Band transmitter is compatible with CubeSat standards and requires very small volume and low power, but very efficiently enables high RF output power and application of high-performance forward error correction schemes.
