Antarctic Broadband was a featured story tonight on ABC TV’s Catalyst science program. The story included interviews with US South Pole Station researchers over an existing satellite link, which can be seen downloaded from the Catalyst website (mp4, 26MB).
Dr John Kovac at South Pole Station says “we’re doing everything humanly possible to compress our data streams and move it out as efficiently as we can…there’s no way around getting more bandwidth…and the next generation of telescopes are going to require far more than we have now, far more than the current satellites can accommodate”. Antarctic Broadband is on the front foot in tackling this challenging and important engineering problem.
Aerospace Concepts wishes to express its sincere thanks everyone who assisted with the production of the program.
