    SpaceX Preps 'Ruggedized' Starlink Dish for Cars, Boats, and Planes

    SpaceX is working on a “ruggedized” version of its Starlink dish designed to work outside cars, boats, and planes and in harsh climates.

    SpaceX filed an application with the FCC on Tuesday to operate the so-called “high-performance” Starlink dish. The hardware still relies on a phased array antenna to receive the high-speed internet from SpaceX satellites in orbit.*

    “But these high-performance (‘HP’) models will operate with higher gain and lower transmit* power (thus maintaining a consistent EIRP compared to other SpaceX Services user terminals),* a higher scan angle, and features that ruggedize the unit for use in harsh environments,” the company wrote in the application.

    Gwynne Shotwell at the Space Symposium,

    * Talked about the chip shortages, and they should resolve later this year. Big part of the launch delays.

    * New user terminal/dish design near New Years; half the cost, and it could halve again next year.

    * ALL future Starlinks will have laser links, another part of the launch delays.

    * Next Starlink launch in ~3 weeks.

    They have 100,000 customers, 600,000 orders so far, and it isn't even officially "open for business."
