Our Technologies

SPACE-NETWORKS

IRIS NETWORKING SOFTWARE


Cambrian Works developed the IRIS software defined network to enable any satellite company to quickly implement a scalable, low-latency, resilient, on-orbit network and automate data flow across one or more constellations for real-time access to every point in a global communications fabric. IRIS, combined with our custom GigRouter, PLEXUS, and DMORF, allows us to rapidly design, develop and implement networked constellations for our clients.

GIGROUTER

IRIS IN A BOX


IRIS is deployable as a standalone installation on any appropriately capable client processor, or pre-installed and delivered on our custom GigRouter as a subsystem. The GigRouter’s small form factor is ideal for integration with any size satellite bus and connects to on-board radios, computers, and payloads using standard Ethernet.

PLEXUS

SPACE NETWORK EMULATOR


PLEXUS is a real-time, at-scale emulation environment for networked constellations providing “try-before-you-fly” and “hardware in the constellation” capability for realistic constellation testing. PLEXUS enables performance evaluation, early in the design process, of network constellations of any size, up to thousands of nodes. This saves development time and costs, getting clients to orbit faster, with greater confidence.

DMORF

DUAL-MODE OPTICAL RF NETWORK RADIOS


DMORF is an all-in-one, dual-mode optical and RF satellite cross-link subsystem providing for flexible channel options to mitigate highly regulated, or contested, RF environments. By providing communications channels, in both RF and optical, DMORF enables resilient and robust communications in the face of natural phenomena, unintended interference, or even electronic warfare.
