By 2025 27% of automotive use cases will require satellite connectivity since ubiquitous, high-speed connectivity for mobile users cannot be delivered by 4G/5G alone. Satellite communication provides unique and complementary features compared to the enormous investments required in terrestrial infrastructure to deliver adequate coverage and capacity to everyone everywhere.
CASSIS (Connect Automotive Satellite-Served Integrated System) is part of a multi-million UK project that aims to put the UK connected vehicle supply chain at the forefront of satellite communications technology and tap into the $160 billion market for mobile satellite terminals and payload technologies.
One of the aims of CASSIS is to deliver high-speed, low-latency and affordable satellite connectivity to enable the next generation of always connected cars.
In this presentation EnSilica, in collaboration with Satellite Applications Catapult (the projects prime contractor), will provide an update on the CASSIS project. An important component of the overall project is the development of an affordable, consumer-scale automotive communications module, with flat panel electronically steerable antenna and custom Ka-Band RF ASIC, that can support hybrid satellite, 4G/5G and Wi-Fi communications, for both line-fit or retro-fitting to existing vehicles.
