QuadSAT to introduce its Drone based Antenna Testing technology at SATELLITE Startup Pavilion

Drone with payload flying

Odense, Denmark, 6th March 2020 – QuadSAT has announced it will exhibit its UAV Antenna Testing technology at SATELLITE for the first time. QuadSAT will showcase its solution at SATELLITE’s Startup Pavilion (stand SP3) from 10th-12th March.

QuadSAT’s debut at SATELLITE follows a successful year in which it signed a contract with ESA to develop its UAS testing solution to comply with industry-wide antenna performance protocol SOMAP, as well as having successfully demonstrated its technology to industry-leading satellite operators.

QuadSAT’s system uses drone technology to test, calibrate and measure the performance of VSAT antennas. The system offers similar capabilities as a traditional antenna test range by generating and receiving test signals in a highly controlled and consistent manner. The result is a portable, cost-effective, and time-efficient method to verify antenna performance. 

Joakim Espeland, CEO, QuadSAT, commented, “We’re looking forward to exhibiting our drone solution at SATELLITE for the first time. We’ve had a successful year in which we have developed the credibility of our antenna testing product through projects and demonstrations with significant industry members. Our technology offers a highly accurate and effective form of testing which will result in savings of both time and money for qualifying new satellite communications products. The QuadSAT team is looking forward to exhibiting the benefits of drone testing technology for antennas at this year’s SATELLITE exhibition.”

Last year’s SATELLITE show saw QuadSAT shortlisted for Via Satellite’s 2018 Satellite Technology of the Year Award.

QuadSAT is exhibiting at stand SP3 in the SATELLITE Startup Pavilion on 10th-12th March 2020.
