Ball Aerospace displays their capabilities at D.C. show... panel discussion on Tuesday, March 7th...

Ball Aerospace is leveraging its decades of work for the U.S. government in civil, defense and intelligence applications for the benefit of commercial markets at this year’s Satellite 2017 show.

As evidenced by recent collaborations with World View, Spire Global, OmniEarth and other partners, Ball’s expertise in space-based and tactical remote sensing systems, data analytics, optical communications and phased array terminals are transforming the commercial marketplace in terms of accessibility and affordability.

For example, Ball is harnessing its experience with state-of-the-art phased array technology to develop commercially viable phased array-based terminals at an affordable price point for high throughput satellite (HTS) service providers. This is enabled by recent innovations in the commercial wireless industry and industry investments to drive technological advancements and reduce costs.
Ball’s expertise on phased array and remote sensing capabilities will be on display throughout Satellite 2017 in a series of high-level panel discussions and at booth #1323 in the Exhibit Hall. Ball Aerospace leaders will also share their expertise in the following panel discussions:
