Innovative communications protocols enabling smarter integrated space-air-earth networks

Research in the field of new communication protocols has made it possible to create interactive platforms for innovative applications.

Machine-to-machine (M2M), non-linear TV, low cost and low environmental impact applications for vehicles and safety.  Our expertise and experience allows us to partner with leading industry players and to participate actively in innovation. In recent years MBI has developed new communication protocols, paving the way to a wide range of applications that will change our daily lives.

Communications and high spectral efficiency

Spread spectrum communications

Software-defined radio

Resistance to noise and interference

The Starfish platform

Imagine a world where your TV satellite dish not only receives signals, but also transmits them. This would open up many and varied opportunities for broadcasting operators: from calculating audiences to managing subscribers, from interaction live in social networks to integration with home automation systems. Using our communication protocols, all this is already possible with Starfish!


he SSEEM (Spread SpEctrum Esva Measurement) System allows Satellite Operators to measure the co- and crosspolar radiation pattern of the transmit/receive antennas of ground stations during Earth Station Verification and Assistance (ESVA) tests. It is a compact and innovative product based on a spread spectrum approach.

Antenna Mapping System (AMS)

The launch of a satellite into orbit is an extremely delicate phase of a high investment project. It is possible that the antenna becomes damaged or positions itself incorrectly.The Antenna Mapping System (AMS) is a highly innovative approach, which employs a software system to check if the satellite antennas have been damaged during the launch. And that is not all! AMS makes use of highly innovative signal processing algorithms in order to pre-compensate possible antenna malfunctions and to ensure that the nominal features of satellite links are preserved.

Enhanced Spread-Spectrum Aloha (ESSA)

The ESSA communication protocol allows highly efficient communication from an energy and spectral point of view. Several leading telecom operators and research centers contributed to its creation. It uses innovative techniques to implement an affordable  two-way satellite link which operates with a large number of terminals and high-throughput, and is robust in terms of noise and interference as well as having low  energy consumption. ESSA brings greater economies of scale, and paves the way to a whole range of applications, from machine-to-machine (M2M) to non-linear TV, from vehicular and safety applications to low-cost internet: thus showing it is possible to innovate in a sustainable way.

Software-Defined Radio (SDR) framework

Traditional technology for telecom systems is based on signal processing techniques using hardware (HW) systems. Instead MBI has chosen an innovative approach by combining general purpose hardware with a software component, thus ensuring greater reconfigurability, increased flexibility to cope with new requirements, as well as considerably lower costs in pro typing, production and operational phases.
