Phasor, the pioneering developer of broadband, electronically steerable antenna systems (ESAs), announced today that it achieved an important milestone by securing commercial contracts valued at over $300 million.

These multi-year product contracts are tied to exclusivity with key customers in defined target markets.

Over the coming months, Phasor expects to announce additional contracts across its commercial mobile broadband and government Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) target markets.

David Helfgott, CEO, Phasor, said:

“These contracts demonstrate Phasor’s progression from a technology development firm to a products company focussed on delivering enterprise-grade ESAs to commercial mobile broadband markets”

Electronically Steerable Antennas

Phasor’s very low profile, electronically steerable antennas enable high-bandwidth service in a more reliable, robust and failure-tolerant way. The antennas are solid-state, with no moving parts, to allow electronic tracking of satellite signals. The modular architecture of the Phasor technology allows antennas to scale to virtually any use-case requirement, fixed or mobile. The antennas can be flat or conformal, and fitted seamlessly to moving aircraft, ships or land-based vehicles. Phasor’s technology is very well suited to support fixed satellite networks, High Throughput Satellite networks and Non-Geosynchronous satellite networks.

About Phasor, Inc.

Phasor Inc. is a leading developer of high throughput, enterprise-grade, modular phased array antennas, headquartered in Washington DC, with a technology development subsidiary in London. Phasor’s electronically steerable antennas (ESAs) are based on patented innovations in dynamic beam forming technologies and system architecture. Phasor’s mission is to enable high-speed broadband communications while in-flight, at sea or travelling over land.

Flat Panel, Electronically Steerable Antennas for the Rail Market

The Phasor team has taken the traditional parabolic-dish antenna and shrunk it onto its own proprietary microchip. By miniaturising the antenna components and functions, Phasor’s electronically steerable antenna (ESA) is just 2 inches thick, with no moving parts. This revolutionary design means that the antenna itself is very low-profile, highly reliable and can be scaled-up without loss of performance and integrated into the train roof as a flat or conformable unit.

Using a software-defined antenna architecture, the Phasor ESA can achieve nearly instantaneous tracking speeds and can track two independent satellites, simultaneously – essential in this new era of NGSO (Non-Geosynchronous Satellite Orbit) constellations.
