C-COM Is Very Inclined To Help Out End Of Life Sats

C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSXV: CMI) has developed a proprietary inclined orbit satellite tracking algorithm which will provide C-COM customers  the ability to use inclined orbit satellites for their space segment needs.

With this feature enabled, the iNetVu controller will ensure that the mobile antenna maintains its maximum peaked signal on the configured inclined orbit satellite irrespective of their inclination angle. Inclined orbit satellites are end of life satellites that may have an additional useful life span from 6 month to a few years, however they are no longer in their prescribed controlled orbit due to lack of fuel.  “We have decided to develop this proprietary inclined orbit application for our controllers based on demand from our customers. This added feature will provide existing and future C-COM customers with the ability to use any inclined orbit satellite, should there be one available to them, and take advantage of the lower cost space segment offered over these satellites” said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
