SatixFy and Kythera Space Solutions Partner to Deliver Advanced Payload Solutions for LEO Constellations

Bethesda, MD and Rehovot, Israel – March 13, 2023 – SatixFy Communications Ltd. (“SatixFy”) (NYSE AMERICAN: SATX), a leader in next-generation satellite communication technology solutions from chip to product, and Kythera Space Solutions (“Kythera”), the leader in dynamic management systems for next-generation payloads and SATCOM networks, announced that they have partnered to deliver advanced payload solutions for LEO constellations.

SatixFy’s advanced SX-4000 processor drives high performance and flexibility of software defined satellite (SDS) platforms, delivering on-board regenerative processing capability and on-orbit reconfigurability. Kythera makes the Kythera Operating System (KOS), the emerging industry standard for dynamically and autonomously managing and optimizing SDS payloads and NextGen SATCOM networks. KOS optimizes payload and network resources, capacity, and service.

The partnership leverages Kythera’s KOS to manage and optimize SatixFy’s SDS payloads, delivering a fully integrated solution that includes the space assets, as well as space and ground segment management and orchestration capabilities for LEO constellation optimization.

The combination of SatixFy’s advanced payload processor with Kythera’s dynamic resource management software will enable customers to reduce overall time-to-market, reduce internal development costs, and increase profitability over the life of their LEO constellations. The combined solution will decrease the operational complexities associated with managing and optimizing complex LEO constellation architectures, increasing operational efficiency while decreasing operational support costs.

“Sophisticated LEO networks that leverage SatixFy’s advanced processors and payloads demand equally high-performance software to manage them,” said Dr. Jeffrey Freedman, PhD, CEO of Kythera Space Solutions. “By leveraging the Kythera Operating System, LEO constellations that employ SatixFy payloads will realize optimized performance and further benefit from interoperability and pooled capacity with other network assets managed within the KOS ecosystem.”

“Our LEO constellation customers are increasingly looking for a holistic solution that provides not only the space hardware assets but the software to manage those assets,” said Ido Gur, CEO of SatixFy. “We’re excited to expand our ecosystem in partnership with Kythera to deliver one of the most advanced SATCOM network management and optimization solution on the market in conjunction with our satellite hardware. The result is a turnkey LEO network solution that allows customers to unlock the full potential and achieve maximum value from their LEO constellation investments.”
