Abaco Systems have received an initial award of a $900,000 design win, with a lifetime potential win of several million, for ground control interface supporting Space Force’s Protected Tactical Satellite (PTS) Communication Program (SATCOM). According to Abaco, PTS serves as a next generation anti-jamming satellite communication system to support warfighters globally.
The win contains Abaco’s VP868 FPGA card, as well as the FMC172 FPGA mezzanine card. The VP868 serves as a 6U OpenVPX compliant plug-in module with digital signal processing capabilities. It is designed for applications which require processing and I/O with the ability to scale from the lab to deployed rugged environments. The FMC172 provides high performance, low latency and high sample rates.
The first order for this design win will be fully delivered by the end of 2020 with additional boards being delivered between 2022 and 2023.
