Honeywell To Provide Control Systems for New Satellite Constellations from Mangata Networks

Honeywell To Provide Control Systems for New Satellite Constellations from Mangata Networks

Honeywell’s system enables seamless connectivity for users of Mangata’s 5G network

PHOENIX, Oct. 04, 2022 — With a goal to provide better internet connectivity to remote areas, Mangata Networks—a satellite telecommunications company—chose Honeywell’s (NASDAQ: HON) space integrated attitude control system (IACS) to support its new constellation of 32 satellites. Mangata’s new highly elliptical orbit (HEO) and medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellite constellations provide communications and weather monitoring in areas that typically lack quality internet connectivity.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with Honeywell as it will design, develop and deliver the avionics for Mangata’s constellation satellites,” said Andreas Doulaveris, vice president, space systems at Mangata Networks. “Honeywell is first-in-class, and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship as together we bring Mangata Networks’ vision to fruition.”

The precision and reliability of Honeywell’s space IACS platform enable seamless and continuous connectivity for users of Mangata’s network of telecommunications satellites. The partnership aims to build secure high-speed connectivity for businesses and individuals in remote areas without adequate internet access.

“The traditional geostationary equatorial orbit (GEO) constellations already provide broadband and other connectivity solutions for consumers and commercial applications, but the existing technology has become too slow by today’s standards,” said Ricky Freeman, president, defense, and space at Honeywell Aerospace. “As a result, global telecommunications companies are modernizing their networks and have started to look to HEO and MEO to provide higher data rates while lowering latency. Honeywell has extensive experience and a strong pedigree in navigation, data handling and momentum control products. Each of these is well suited to support these HEO and MEO satellite constellations, and our IACS platform will provide Mangata Networks with the precision and reliability it needs to operate its network of telecommunications satellites.”

IACS is a comprehensive control and steering solution for satellites that ensures the proper altitude and position of space vehicles, which is essential for effective signal communication and solar power generation to keep the satellites operating efficiently.
