4Links designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of SpaceWire test equipment. These provide unequalled insight
into the operation of your SpaceWire network. Whether you are monitoring SpaceWire traffic between two devices, or
creating a device model to initiate or respond to another device, 4Links offers you the right solution, so you can quickly
and efficiently find and diagnose your problem.
At Space-Comm 4Links will introduce and demonstrate its new Loki product. The concept is based around the same boards
being usable across a range of user defined solutions. The Loki FPGA Mezzanine board uses an FPGA with configuration and
local memory devices built into it. The functionality of the FPGA is determined by the FPGA image loaded by the configuration memory.
The Loki IO Carrier board uses the same physical IO Carrier PCB, but with different build options depending on the required
function. It can be configured as a CCSDS/RS422 board, a SpaceWire Ethernet Bridge (SEB), or a SpaceWire Router Switch (SRS)
boards. It connects to the same FPGA Mezzanine, but with different FPGA images.

Constellations of satellites are needed for applications such as remote sensing, internet from space or weather observation. However, these constellations require satellites to be deployed to multiple specific orbits. Currently, it is too expensive to use even low-cost reusable rockets to deliver satellites to every orbit.
To solve this problem, Momentus is providing shuttle and hosted payload services for satellites. Large rockets deliver our shuttles loaded with satellites into an initial orbit. Our shuttles then transport these satellites the last mile to their target orbits. Our satellite shuttles are powered by water plasma engines and make deployment of satellites at least two to three times cheaper.
