Free Space Optics (FSO)

Spectrum congestion in the RF domain and the increased need for bandwidth require highly capable FSO communication systems.  TrellisWare is applying channel adaptive signal processing techniques and novel protocols to enhance FSO modem capabilities.

Our FSO modem effectively provides optimal performance under highly scintillating channel conditions.  TrellisWare’s approach combats scintillation-induced fading using digital processing techniques instead of Adaptive Optics (AO) – significantly reducing Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) of the overall system. The modem measures the channel and adapts on a packet-by-packet basis to match the available channel capacity.
