BE THE FIRST TO KNOW WHEN LINKS™ IS LIVE
ATLAS is currently working with the Department of Defense’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) to further test and develop LINKS™ Electronically Steered Array. ATLAS was awarded a contract through the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and in partnership with the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) for the development of a multi-band, multi-mission antenna system.
ATLAS’ prototype antenna is a scalable RF satellite communications system that requires only 10% of the space that comparable hardware solutions require. To learn more about recent of achievements regarding our revolutionary multi-band, multi-mission (MBMM) phased array antenna system, see our recent press release: ATLAS Advances Breakthrough Multi-Band, Multi-Mission Capability.

For eight years during the Cold War, the United States kept a fleet of bombers high above the Arctic around the clock. The Arctic was of great strategic importance at the time for its proximity to the then-Soviet Union. With this in mind, the US flew bombers in patterns over vast swaths of ice to provide the greatest possible degree of readiness.
With the addition of five new ground stations to its growing global ground network, ATLAS Space Operations continues to find ways to achieve its chief mission: connecting humanity through space. The new antennas in New Zealand, Australia, Scotland, Alaska, and an upcoming commissioning in Dubai, UAE represent a dramatic increase in ATLAS’ global footprint and network capacity. The move is expected to bolster global antenna coverage and establish new communications opportunities for the burgeoning satellite market.
With the recent launch of a Soyuz-2.1a rocket from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome, ATLAS Space Operations has grown to support three brand new missions with its Freedom™ Platform. Amid the multinational launch, ATLAS will support Astroscale, LinaSpace, and Axelspace in some of the most impressive space-based missions happening today.
