LinkStar is a complete duplex satellite radio system powered by Globalstar™, the world’s most modern satellite network with a great added feature: the NovAtel OEM719 GPS for accurate tracking.  The heart of the LinkStar radio system is the Globalstar GSP-1720 that provides Direct Connect Internet, Dial-up Internet or Remote Terminated Data sessions and asynchronous computer to computer connectivity for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications.  These options provide communication lines with land, marine, air, near space, and space-based equipment, while complementing mobile and stationary field solutions.  Whether mobile or stationary, the GSP-1720 helps you monitor, control or track assets remotely through the Globalstar satellite network – affordably, reliably and with low-power requirements.

The LinkStar Duplex Radio System is a complete package including the GSP-1720, industrial BeagleBone Black, wiring harness, serial communications interface, development case to house the unit, and A/C power adapter.  To get operational immeditely we also provide the QuickSAT/VMS server enviroment including web tools and MySQL based database to run on your server.

NOTE - for those looking at Small Satellite applications, the LinkStar Duplex Radio System is an EXCELLENT engineering model and test bed for your satellite.  Unit can be upgraded for use in space for a fee.  Or data can be easily transfer from your engineering model to your flight model.
