Our adaptable low-power AAC SpaceQuest RX-2000 S-band receiver is designed to offer high data rates that support a variety of data interfaces and modulation schemes.
The AAC SpaceQuest RX-2000 have been in operation on-orbit for over 30 years for their own satellite and for a wide range of blue-chip clients around the globe.
The receiver operates on S-band frequencies with GMSK modulation and up to 26 customer programmable channels with 20 MHz bandwidth, enabling configuration control.
The RX-2000 is an efficient space qualified FM S-Band receiver for MicroSats and small satellites. The RX-2000 component enables ease of integration with both individual and commercial ground station networks. Whilst not CubeSat Standard, this solution can be used in a CubeSat system design. The chassis of the RX -2000 employs a “clam-shell” design, allowing flexibility for spacecraft bus mounting options.
The receiver generates a clock and data output allowing customers the flexibility and control to implement customized or reconfigurable communication protocols on their flight computer or on an auxiliary communications processor.
This unit is a compact FM S-Band receiver optimized for the small satellite market. The chassis of the RX -200 employs a “clam-shell” design, allowing flexibility for spacecraft bus mounting options.
The receiver and GMSK modem, allow for configuration control. The unit provides the ability to reconfigure data rates and frequencies on orbit through the selection from multiple channel presents.
These units have been extensively tested. They have been in operation on-orbit for over 30 years on AAC SpaceQuest satellites and for a wide range of blue-chip clients around the globe.
