Satellite Design

For Satellite Manufacturers: Your newest flexible satellites can do just about anything. They have on-board processors, channelizers, and beam formers that make them the Swiss army knife of satellites. But how can you prove your satellite will provide the capacity and coverage your customers actually need them to? Kythera’s satellite design solutions enable you to quickly optimize and iterate on your satellite design based on the specific business scenarios you and your customers are proposing. Get results in seconds, not in a week. Prove your satellite’s value immediately. In proposals. In your executive meetings. In front of your customer.

For Satellite Operators: You’re thinking ahead. Your next satellite will be supremely flexible, with an on-board processor, channelizer, beam former, and maybe a toaster (maybe not). But is all that flexibility actually going to meet your service / mission needs? Kythera’s satellite design solutions enable to quickly evaluate candidate designs based on your business use cases and demand scenarios. Now you have a way to confidently select a satellite that will in fact deliver on its flexible promises and meet your specific needs. Use in business case and satellite design planning, in RFPs, in vendor selection, and throughout the satellite’s lifecycle.


Satellite Management and Optimization

Sophisticated communication satellites with on-board channelization and beam forming capabilities promise satellite operators and their customers extraordinary flexibility. But, they also bring newfound complexity that simply can’t be managed using traditional methods or systems.

Designed for satellite manufacturers and operators, Kythera’s intelligent, real-time systems make it easy to harness the full power of your most advanced high-throughput satellites, enabling you to maximize capacity and service.

The Kythera’s Dynamic Space Network Operating System manages and optimizes satellite and network resources, increasing your satellite, fleet, and constellation capacity by optimizing power, bandwidth, coverage, frequency, beam shape and laydown, and routing plans. With Kythera, you deliver service and capacity exactly where and when it’s needed. 

Our patented Virtual Satellite Hubs empower your customers with the ability to manage their own virtual satellite, with beams, routing, and power levels all under their control.



Future satellites will use beam forming to provide even more flexibility to satellite operators. This technology enables the same satellite to service different missions as the customer base changes, allowing operators to deliver new services and to adapt to changing business needs. However, this technology greatly increases the need for specialized software to manage beam design, frequency reuse, power levels and other flexibility supported by beam forming.


Light-years Ahead

We work with the most forward-leaning U.S. government agencies, developing solutions for managing, commanding, and optimizing constellations of MILCOM, SATCOM, and COMSATCOM constellations of satellites, providing unprecedented real-time mission control and situational awareness.



We like to put to good use our decades of experience developing advanced software solutions for the space industry. If your challenge has anything to do with satellites, antennas, communications systems, or resource optimization, chances are, we’ve tackled something very similar before. If you have something new and groundbreaking, we thrive on solving the tough problems. Give us a call.
