Atheras Analytics has developed a suite of AI-based, SaaS-delivered software tools for designing and operating Ka-band and Q/V-band satellite networks to mitigate the effects of weather and improve network and service availability.

Design Tool

EuropeSatelites-map

The delivery of high throughput data services requires the use of tens or hundreds of gateways. The cost-effective implementation of such a large number of gateways prompts multiple design questions including:-

  • How many gateways are needed?
  • How many diversity gateways?
  • Where should the gateways be located for best availability?
  • What is the optimum gain for each gateway antenna?
  • What is the optimum link budget/fade margin?
  • How do we manage and operate the gateways?
  • Can I support multiple services?

Operational Tool

OperationalTool-Outage

The SGD Operational Tool uses AI-techniques to enable satellite operators to pro-actively manage both simple two-station diversity gateways and more complex Smart Gateway Diversity (SGD) arrangements by:

  • predicting outages 6 hours ahead
  • analysing weather predictions at available diversity gateways
  • automatically transferring traffic to alternate gateways before outages occur.

Mobile-Satellite

The ability to predict telecommunications outages for users of Ka-band User Terminals employed in mission-critical applications, such as defence and security, will be of significant operational benefit to such users.

The UTOPiA service is provided through our partner Ka-band Satellite Service Providers.
