A fledgling technology could help the Air Force eliminate the need for theater-specific airborne communication platforms.
With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program, Colorado-based Roccor LLC made significant advancements on a deployable antenna boom that allows Wi-Fi data rates from small satellite platforms. Until now, such broadband communications have only been possible on larger satellites.
Also known as the ROC Boom, the company’s technology capitalizes on the affordability of increasingly popular SmallSats. It was originally created by Roccor under the NASA SBIR/STTR Program.
