Space Exploration and Communication
The vastness of space poses unique challenges in connectivity and communication precision. Space exploration requires long-distance object control and system connectivity where network latency must not compromise reliability. Whether the risks are performance, vision, communication or human lives, RTI Connext provides the real-time data flow and connectivity needed to help achieve the mission’s success.
