  1. 1. O3b Applications for Emergency ResponseWGET-ICT Humanitarian Forum11-12 April 2013David Burr,Director, Product Development
  2. 2. Launch Update• O3b Networks is launching 8 satellites this year • The first 4 will launch in just a few weeks. • Commercial services commencing in Q4 • An additional 4 satellites will follow in 2014• The O3b constellation makes use of: • A Medium Earth Orbit which reduces delay and improves performance while reducing costs • Ka-band frequencies, to provide higher throughput. • A flexible spot beam architecture that allows capacity to be delivered where needed, and to be moved in near real time as operational requirements change.• O3b wants to explore with the WGET community how this ground-breaking service can be deployed to support emergency and humanitarian response. 2
  3. 3. O3b – A revolutionary solution • A different kind of satellite: • The Medium Earth Orbit reduces delay by 75% compared with GEO O3b Networks 8,062 km • Lower cost to build and launch compared with GEO • O3b is the first satellite constellation built with IP and mobile networks in mind • O3bs cost advantage enables the business case for sites that are not possible with GEO • O3bs low latency dramatically improves the quality of voice and data services 36,000 km O3b 150ms 500ms Geostationary Satellites 3
  4. 4. How O3b Works 4
  5. 5. Satellite Overview• Each satellite has 12 steerable antennas • 10 antennas used for customer beams • 2 antennas used for Gateway connectivity • Each beam is independently steerable to any location within +/- 45 latitude • Beams can be stacked at the same location to provide additional capacity • Circular polarization is used RHCP and LHCP• Each Gateway beam is connected to five customer beams • A single satellite supports two groups of this 1:5 configuration • Loopback beams can also be configured to provide localized connectivity up and down in the same beam• Each customer beam is configured with • a 216 MHz Ka-band transponder in the forward direction • a 216 MHz Ka-band transponder in the return direction 5
  6. 6. Satellite Payload • Each satellite has 12 steerable antennas: • 40 cm in diameter • 6 RHCP and 6 LHCP. • Two axis gimbals to control elevation and azimuth angles. 6
  7. 7. Coverage – Where it counts. • 177 countries and 70% of earth’s population are within optimal coverage • Much of the most demanding humanitarian response geography will be served
  8. 8. Beam Coverage • Inner coverage is defined as 0.2o off-boresight. This inner antenna coverage (approximately 50 km in diameter) provides optimal antenna gain for premier Tier 1 services. • Outer coverage is defined as 2.5o off-boresight. 2.5o Outer • This antenna coverage (approximately 700 km in Coverage diameter) provides coverage area for customer services, while also providing sufficient antenna gain. 0.2o Inner Coverage 700 km 50 km Outer Inner Coverage Coverage 8

  10. 10. What’s possible? If I had access to a large amount of affordable, low latency bandwidth, how would this change remote communications? Could I: implement innovative embrace social media ? technologies? ? (without affecting others or breaking the bank?) access ‘Big Data’ on-site and meet future service ? in real time? ? expectations? 10
