Will IDRS change the Way We Think of and Use LEO Satellites Today?

SmallSats and CubeSats in Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) have for many years been limited by the short ground station overpass time (around ten minutes per overpass). The use of LEO satellites for real-time applications have therefore been restricted. Delayed data may be acceptable in some cases, but in others, the delay has a negative impact on the use and relevance of transmitted data. The limited overpass time causes satellites to store and...

New LEO Satellites Bring Fresh Cyber Issues

The new generation of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites — thousands of which will be launched over the next few years — may be easier to secure from cyberattacks than current constellations, but in some ways, they present a larger attack surface for hackers, according to a panel at CyberSat Friday. “There are new things that need to be protected” in an LEO constellation, explained Ronald Einhorn, the space programs lead systems engineer for...

Will 5G Be Bad for Our Health?

THE INSTITUTECitizens in several cities including Aspen, Colo.; Bern, Switzerland; San Diego, Calif.; and Totnes, England have been protesting the installation of 5G wireless base stations over concerns about the harmful effects these network nodes could have on humans, animals, and plants. They point to the potential danger of radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted from antennas installed in close proximity to people. Protestors also cite...
