MDA has developed the CASCADE satellite system, a constellation of low-cost, Low
Earth Orbit (LEO) small satellites to deliver high bandwidth store-and-forward communications.
Essentially a digital courier, the CASCADE GigaPackage service will enable cost-effective
pickup and delivery of extremely large digital data files ranging from tens to hundreds
of gigabytes per user, to and from locations anywhere in the world, within hours.
CASCADE includes the following key components:
- Ka-band RF transmit and receive chains
- High data rate space-qualified modulators
- High capacity, low power, low mass, on-board flash data storage
End-to-end very large file transfer
