Multi-Beam, Reconfigurable, Phased-Array Antenna Solution for Next-Gen Satellites

first_imgThinKom Solutions has released a new phased-array antenna solution for efficient and effective land-based gateways designed to accommodate current and next-generation low-Earth-orbit (LEO) and medium-Earth-orbit (MEO) satellite constellations. The new gateway concept, which ThinKom describes as an “array of arrays,” will provide a superior alternative to the large “antenna farms” of parabolic dishes currently used for support of geostationary (GEO) satellites. It is based on ThinKom’s proven phased-array antenna technology, which is currently in use on over 1,300 commercial aircraft installations worldwide, in 10M+ hours of proven high-reliability operation.Limitations of Dish-Based Gateways for LEO Networks Current-generation gateways employ large parabolic dishes which are necessarily limited to one link per dish. Further, they are unable to repoint quickly to a different satellite, given their complex drive mechanisms. These legacy systems are large, heavy, expensive to install and maintain, and can take months to deploy. Additionally, they are adversely affected by wind, snow, and ice loading and typically require a substantial concrete foundation or reinforcement of roof structure to support the weight and uplift forces of several thousand kilograms resulting from even moderate wind conditions. These multi-dish gateway sites must allow for sufficient separation in order to avoid dish-to-dish blockages, often requiring a relatively large swath of real estate (as illustrated below). New Paradigm: An Array of Arrays ThinKom’s approach uses multiple, tightly arranged, phased-array antennas, which are coherently (and reconfigurably) combined. The antenna units work together to track multiple LEO, MEO and GEO satellites simultaneously with look angles between 5 and 90 degrees in elevation and full 360-degree coverage in azimuth. The software-defined system is reconfigurable in that a single array is capable of supporting multiple links, modifying the number of beams and radiation properties dynamically to meet the link budget and throughput demands of the ever-changing number of satellites in view. It does all this without the high-power consumption of electronically scanned arrays, which is a critical feature in areas that rely on solar power or are otherwise energy-constrained due to geographic location. The array, to be initially deployed in S-band and X-band operation (with higher frequencies brought online as the market demands), is constructed in a fixed convex shape in order to provide maximum low-elevation coverage and minimize signal blockage while promoting the shedding of rain and snow. The visual signature of an array is less than two meters tall serving to eliminate the effects of high wind conditions and the footprint for a typical array (equivalent to eight 2.4-meter dishes or three 4.5-meter dishes or any mixed combination) occupies less than seven square meters, uniquely enabling flexible deployment in areas with limited real estate, such as rooftop locations.Click here to learn more about ThinKom.last_img read more

25 days agoMan Utd hero Keane pleads patience for ‘classy guy’ Solskjaer

first_imgMan Utd hero Keane pleads patience for ‘classy guy’ Solskjaerby Freddie Taylor25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Roy Keane insists Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must be given more time to succeed at Old Trafford.Monday’s draw with Arsenal left United with their worst start in 30 years and pressure on Solskjaer is mounting.But Keane says his former teammate needs a couple of transfer windows to change his squad.”I think he has been brilliant, a good honest guy. It is hard work at the moment, but there are six or seven young players learning their way,” said Keane on Sky Sports.”We’re all very impatient, we want success yesterday, but you have to give the man time. He is frustrated, under pressure, but dealing with it. He’s a classy guy but no doubt he will be disappointed at not winning enough games.”They have given him the job, support him in a couple of transfer windows. Are there more tough days ahead? You bet your life, but you need to stick with it. There was a lack of quality from both teams tonight. Their lack of goals, the lack of opportunities they’re creating.”Give these boys time. But on tonight’s performance, none of them [neither Manchester United nor Arsenal] will be in the top four.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Photo: Someone Sprayed #BringBackBruce On Tennessee’s Famous Rock

first_imgTennessee rock spray painted with "Bring Back Bruce."The Rock is one of the major landmarks at the University of Tennessee. According to the UT Athletics website, for decades, students have painted the rock with messages ranging from “birth announcements to memorials, break-up messages to marriage proposals, protests of war to messages of peace, celebration of Vol victories to expressions of, shall we say, disappointment.”Apparently , at least one Tennessee student decided to use The Rock as a personal billboard to advocate the return of former men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl. Pearl enjoyed a successful six-year tenure in Knoxville from 2006-11, before being fired for numerous NCAA infractions. He is currently the head coach of Auburn University. The Vols are in the market for a new head coach after Donnie Tyndall was fired this week for…NCAA violations. Our amateur artist feels Pearl’s track record (at least the positive parts of it) make him the perfect replacement for Tyndall.#BringBackBruce on the rock @coachbrucepearl #VFL pic.twitter.com/QhYzgObwxb— Brandon Carpenter (@bcarp49) March 28, 2015last_img read more

Toyotas hydrogen fuel cell will make its Canadian debut this year in

first_imgMONTREAL – Toyota is introducing its first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle into Canada’s most active electric vehicle market later this year, a move that could eventually help eliminate emissions from automobile use in Canada.About 50 Mirai fuel cell electric vehicles are expected to be delivered to Quebec in 2018 for use by government and private fleets.Quebec Energy Minister Pierre Moreau said the province is an ideal location for these cars because of cheap, clean hydroelectricity that can be used to produce liquid hydrogen.“It’s a very important announcement because Quebec will become the window in all Canada for the hydrogen car,” he said after the Japanese carmaker unveiled its plans at the Montreal International Auto Show.Quebec has pushed the adoption of electric vehicles, in part by passing Canada’s first law mandating a minimum threshold of EV sales. But Moreau said the government is open to other technologies as it aims to reduce its use of fossil fuels by 40 per cent in 2030.“I see a synergy and not a competition,” he said.While most electric vehicle cars have limited range which makes them most suitable for urban travel, the Mirai can travel 500 kilometres on a single tank that is quickly filled and can operate in the coldest conditions. By contrast, most EV recharging is done at home overnight, and even the fastest charges take 30 minutes or more.The province will open two hydrogen fuel stations next fall — one in Montreal and one Quebec City — that will produce and distribute hydrogen fuel. The cars to be delivered towards the end of the year will be tested during a pilot phase.The government hasn’t yet determined if Hydro-Quebec or the private sector would eventually produce hydrogen for sale within the province and beyond.Toyota Canada isn’t ready to announce when the vehicles will be available for public purchase or the selling price. In California, they sell for US$57,000 minus rebates and include a three-year supply of hydrogen.Toyota Canada vice-president Stephen Beatty said he expects sales will quickly accelerate as refuelling infrastructure develops. B.C. and Ontario are also building fuel stations.“I suspect that this, like all advanced technology projects, is going to take its time but there’s enormous promise for it because it’s not just about cars,” he said in an interview.Beatty said every major car manufacturer is looking at hydrogen fuel. He said different consumer options are needed to achieve the ultimate goal, which is to drive carbon out of transportation.Electric vehicles remained a topic of interest at the auto show with the display of about 40 models just days after Quebec’s zero emissions laws formally came into effect.Car companies like BMW, Ford and Volkswagen are preparing to introduce a series of new electric vehicle options over the coming years.Electric vehicles grew strongly last year but still accounted for only about one per cent of all sales in Canada.Magna International (TSX:MG) says the internal combustion engine will remain dominant for years to come even as electric vehicle sales grow.By 2025, it expects global electric vehicle sales will account for just six per cent of sales, rising to 13 per cent in 2030.Despite a record two million auto sales last year, Canadian light vehicle production fell about seven per cent from 2016, DesRosiers Automotive Consultants estimated Thursday.The automotive expert expects 2.2 million cars and light trucks will be built in Canada, a drop of 200,000.A CAMI strike at the General Motors plant in Ingersoll, Ont., was a factor and production of the GMC Terrain has moved to Mexico.Also, the U.S. market, which drives 90 per cent of Canada’s auto output, softened from its peak in 2016.Still, the long-term prospects for Canadian auto production aren’t necessarily positive.Canada has been losing assembly work to Mexico and the United States that some fear could accelerate with tax cuts south of the border and uncertainty over NAFTA’s future.Unifor, which represented unionized Canadian autoworkers, forecasts relatively stable Canadian auto production this year at around 2.1 million, falling by a few percentage points in 2019.Bill Murnighan, director of research, said Canadian plants are in “decent shape” in the mid-term after having received $1.5 billion in new investments negotiated in 2016.“Of course, longer term we remain concerned about unbalanced trade with Mexico, and with many other regions of the world, which ultimately drive down U.S. and Canadian production,” he wrote in an email.“That’s why we’re so concerned about NAFTA discussions and have raised the need for the agreement to be improved.”last_img read more

Health Canada provides food safety tips when shopping at farmers markets

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the summer well underway, Health Canada is reminding Canadians of how to keep safe and healthy when purchasing fresh, local foods from farmers’ markets.According to Health Canada, fresh produce can become contaminated in the field through contact with soil, contaminated water, wild or domestic animals, or improperly composted manure.To avoid illness, Health Canada advises that you should store fresh produce in the refrigerator, and before consumption, you should always thoroughly rinse fruits and vegetables in cool water. When it comes to buying meats, you should choose properly chilled meat and place packages of raw meat in separate shopping bags to keep meat juices from leaking onto other foods.Health Canada also says that it is a good idea to wash bags and bins after each use to avoid the spread of foodborne illnesses.More food safety tips can be found on Health Canada’s website.last_img read more

YSRC retains all sitting MLAs Jagan to seek reelection from Pulivendula

first_imgAmaravati (AP): Fighting a do-or-die electoral battle in Andhra Pradesh on April 11, the main opposition YSR Congress on Sunday announced its candidates for all 175 assembly seats, retaining almost all the sitting MLAs and giving a major share to the backward communities.YSRC chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy who is aspiring to become the chief minister in his late father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s footsteps will, for the second time, contest from his family pocket borough Pulivendula in Kadapa district. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedIn 2014, Jagan won the seat by a record margin of 74,256 votes, the highest in the state. The announcement of candidates, however, triggered some rebellion in the party in a few districts, including Guntur, Prakasam and Visakhapatnam where some aspirants were denied tickets. Floated in 2011 after Jaganmohan Reddy quit the Congress over denial of chief ministership, the YSRC lost the race in the 2014 general elections, getting just 0.3 per cent less vote share than the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) that captured power winning 106 seats in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) then. Though the YSRC won 67 seats, as many as 23 of its MLAs defected to the ruling party in 2016 and 2017. In the context, the 2019 election is a do-or-die battle for the YSRC as its political longevity will largely depend on election result. Political strategist Prashant Kishore, who worked the electoral magic for Narendra Modi in 2014, is YSRC’s consultant now.last_img read more

Man duped many by issuing fake air tickets held

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Crime Branch of Delhi Police has arrested a cheat identified as Sandeep Kumar Jha, a resident of Khajoori Khas, Delhi, who duped several persons by issuing fake air tickets. He is a proclaimed offender in a cheating case of Barakhamba Road police station, Delhi, and is also wanted in numerous other cheating cases in Jaipur, Pune and Pondicherry.According to police, Sandeep Jha admitted his involvement in numerous cases. He disclosed that he had provided fake air tickets to many persons while being employed with a travel agency in Connaught Place, New Delhi. He had managed to convince the proprietor of the travel agency using his marketing skills, he could arrange for cheaper air tickets as compared to the prevailing market rates. After working honestly for some time, he gained the trust of his employer but soon started cheating the firm and innocent travellers by issuing fake air tickets in place of genuine air tickets.

AAP representing Purvanchalis since day one says Dilip Pandey

first_imgFrom the promise of standing beside the self-respect of the Purvanchali community to the dream of transforming the Yamuna Paar area. From stardom vs common man goals to the issue of full statehood, AAP North East Delhi candidate Dilip Pandey talks exclusively to Sayantan Ghosh. North East Delhi has a large Purvanchali population and from the day 1, AAP alleged that BJP has deleted many such voters name from the list, what is the ground situation of this constituency? Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderTo understand the ground politics of this constituency you have to look at the history of Purvanchalis in Delhi. Before AAP came to power in Delhi there was no political party which prioritised the Purvanchalis. When we started our work from day one we started representing these people. When I became the state convenor, I started sitting with the community people regularly to find out the issues they face. Later, BJP brought MP Manoj Tiwari who however hardly represented the Purvanchalis of Delhi. Then a time came when Purvanchalis were beaten up mercilessly by the BJP. We protested and held many local rallies. I also wrote to the BJP MPs on the issue but no one really did anything. Lastly, they came down to cut voters names from the list and we unmasked that too. Recently, if you see the Purvanchali turn out at Manoj Tiwari’s rally at Ramleela Maidan, you will see that there was very less Purvanchali presence. This shows that in the ground BJP has no support of these people. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings Current MP from this area is not only the state BJP chief but also one of the biggest stars of Bhojpuri film industry, how difficult for you to fight his stardom? He is a very big man and a star. But my fight is not against the stardom but for the people of North East Delhi. This part has been underdeveloped for years and that is what my top focus is. People of this area has always voted for big names some times for stars, sometimes for great politicians but this time I want people to vote for a person who stays with them. I can not fight the money power of BJP but I have the willpower hence here is the fight between money vs willpower. If you become the MP then what are the key things you would be working? If you ever ask a person of North East Delhi who is travelling to Central Delhi that where is he or she going, then you will get the answer that he or she is going to Delhi. The people here still find them as people of “Yamuna Paar” and my key focus is to change this notion. I will make this as developed as Delhi. The work has already started and the kickstart was the inauguration of Signature Bridge. Thereafter metro Pink Line also work also completed and many key projects of making roads are on the pipeline. When so many development works are needed for this area then how are you communicating the party’s key agenda of full statehood demand to the people? It is not a tough job as a major section of this are is the direct beneficiary of the Delhi government schemes. When I talk about full statehood I also say that on the full statehood can make Delhi safer and also help me to finish the pending works for. For an underdeveloped are like this constituency safety, housing, education and jobs have high demand. I am telling them that only if we get the full-statehood we would be able to deliver as required else everything would be delayed. I think the people of Delhi have witnessed the good work of AAP-government and empathise with the fact that the Center always obstruct the work.last_img read more
