DEV Systemtechnik GmbH joins the Digital IF Interoperability Consortium (DIFI)

DEV Systemtechnik announced that it has joined the DIFI Consortium, an independent space industry group formed to advance interoperability in satellite and ground system networks.

DEV Systemtechnik joins a growing roster of leading organizations in the space industry coming together to form the Digital IF Interoperability Consortium. These organizations are contributing to the innovation of digital transformation of space, satellite, and related space technologies for the benefit of the industry.

DEV will leverage decades of RF signal management and RF signal transmission experience in combination with leading edge semiconductor and mixed signal expertise to support the satellite industry with highly competitive digital RF solutions. DIFI compliant analogue – digital conversion and transmission systems utilizing latest semiconductor technology will help to overcome shortfalls of conventional analog systems with regards to flexibility, manageability, and versatility.

DIFI compliant systems will trigger a paradigm shift in global satellite networks leading to highly flexible and efficient utilization of satellite bandwidth and network capacity” emphasizes Manfred Mettendorff, “software defined systems will enable variable bandwidth allocation and changing modulation schemes whenever and wherever required adapting to changing and upcoming requirements. DEV is looking forward contributing to this transformation of the industry.”

“We welcome DEV Systemtechnik to the growing ranks of the DIFI organization, given their strong background and experience in RF systems and transport” commented Stuart Daughtridge Chairman of DIFI and Vice President Advance Technology for Kratos. Their commitment to the expansion of the digital transformation of ground systems through interoperability is further evidence of the value that DIFI is bringing to the satellite industry.
