On the Constellations Podcast we’ll discuss how satellite services and business models are becoming much more dynamic. The age of the simple "bent-pipe" satellite is coming to an end. A new era of software-defined satellites is being ushered in to satisfy customer demand that can evolve minute to minute.
During this episode, Jeff Freedman, CEO of Kythera Space Solutions, will discuss how satellite operations are evolving with satellites that can change frequency bands, coverage areas, power allocation, and architecture on-demand. He’ll discuss how these increasingly capable, but also complex software-defined satellites can be managed effectively with powerful satellite network management systems. Hear Jeff explain how SES's new O3b mPOWER MEO and SES-17 GEO satellites will take advantage of advanced satellite operating systems to enable the dynamic provisioning of services on the fly to meet customer demand.
Jeff has more than 30 years of telecommunication engineering and software development experience. He holds dozens of patents in satellite payload design, satellite resource management software, and telecommunication architectures.
