SENTEL Develops Enhancements to Satellite Communication

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- SENTEL Corp., a technology services company that provides the federal government, military and commercial enterprises with engineering products and services worldwide, has received patents on technology that can improve satellite communication capacity by up to 38 percent.

"Wireless data transmission today requires the use of robust networks and technologies to power the timely throughput of increasingly larger files and data formats," said Darrell L. Crapps, SENTEL's president and CEO. "Our engineers continue to find ways to help our clients by developing and adapting technologies and by finding ways to help optimize the use of existing systems."

SENTEL's most recent innovation enhances the currently accepted state-of-the-art technology for controlling the noise that corrupts wireless data transmission by making the receiver more sensitive to its intended signal and less sensitive to noise and interference. Such interference commonly occurs where multiple satellites are co-located, as are those onboard naval vessels.

By eliminating signal interference, devices such as Radio Frequency receivers can employ channels that once were rendered unusable due to noise. According to Crapps, the enhancement can increase system data capacity by up to roughly 38%. For the same capacity, he added, it can allow a reduced power setting.
