Compunetix is proud to announce that they will be inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame during the Space Foundation’s 36th annual Space Symposium held in Colorado Springs, CO from October 31st to November 2, 2020. As one of three organizations inducted in 2020, Compunetix will be honored for the company’s role in designing, developing and commercializing sophisticated and scalable collaborative voice communication platforms for NASA space missions. Dr. Giorgio Coraluppi, President and founder of Compunetix will also be individually honored at this event.
Developed and engineered to NASA requirements for complex mission communications, the initial Voice Switching System (VSS) – and its successor, the Voice Communications System (VCS) – was delivered to Goddard Space Flight Center and was designed around the core technology of a patented non-blocking switch algorithm. This 4000-port system was utilized to provide group voice and data communications connecting all of the people on the ground and in space in a new way that enabled immediate rearrangement of endpoints without interrupting the communication flow.
“Compunetix is honored to be recognized for our efforts in expanding the capability and commercial application of multipoint voice conferencing. The innovative work we produced for NASA in the 1980’s directly set the stage for the current convergence around digital collaboration workspaces,” explains Dr. Coraluppi. “The success produced at Goddard resulted directly into the expansion and acceptance of our platforms for private corporations, communication service providers and government agencies.” Click here to read the Compunetix press release or click here to read the Space Foundation’s release about this year’s ceremony.
