ALL.SPACE announced the delivery of its first smart terminal to SES for testing over its medium earth orbit (MEO) systems, O3b and O3b mPOWER. The milestone marks one of the final steps before the company officially launches its smart terminal to the defense and commercial market.

“Full performance, concurrent connections to multiple satellites in multiple orbits is now a reality,” said CEO and Founder John Finney. “Our multi-link breakthrough is revolutionizing the way organizations view and leverage networking solutions. No longer limited to a single link, enterprises can now access multiple, concurrent, full aperture performance links for increased speed and reliability.”

Both commercial and defense enterprises can spin up software-defined links from the ALL.SPACE platform, giving them access to even more bandwidth and improved performance.

ALL.SPACE concluded successful over-the-air demonstrations in November 2021 and 2022 and is the only electronically scanned antenna to have conducted full over-the-air tests across every major orbit. It remains the only single device to achieve simultaneous full performance connections to satellites across all orbits.

A terminal capable of simultaneously connecting to low earth orbit, geostationary satellites and MEO satellites is critical for NATO and U.S. defense customers to deliver data at the tactical edge in a contested space environment. 

Scott Sprague, chief commercial officer for ALL.SPACE, is seeing significant excitement for the ALL.SPACE terminal across all verticals at Satellite 2023, but especially with the U.S. Department of Defense.

“Equipping troops in the field and giving them more capabilities and more resiliency and doing it in a form factor that’s never been seen before with multiple full performance beams is where the real buzz is,” Sprague said.

ALL.SPACE's fully mil-standard smart terminal range will enable SES to fulfill the needs of both military and commercial customers in taking advantage of its O3b mPOWER system.

“Our smart terminal's scalability makes it ideal for this purpose, allowing customers to adjust their use of the O3b mPOWER system quickly and seamlessly to meet their changing needs,” Sprague said.

ALL.SPACE has made significant investments in its people and facilities in Reading to ensure the company’s production readiness, so it can fulfill volume orders for its military-grade terminal this year.
