  • For the #Apollo50th, the Motorola Amateur Radio Club hosted a special event featuring a broadcast about the company's contributions to the #Apollo11 moon landing as well as displays of our innovations from across #MotorolaSolutions history. #MotoSolutionsLife
  • Today, #MotorolaSolutions recognizes the #Apollo50th anniversary. We're honored that our legacy of innovation includes the communications equipment used in the Apollo space program and the first manned moon landing in 1969 by #Apollo11. We helped man reach space through creativity in electronics alongside @NASA by producing equipment for every manned space mission and most of the major unmanned missions leading up to Apollo 11.
  • To ensure the success of the #Apollo11 mission, the Motorola Apollo Block II, a unified S-Band transponder for the command module, provided all voice, TV, telemetry and ranging information between the Apollo spacecraft and Earth. The electronic device was a #radio transmitter and phase-lock receiver built into one unit. There were a number of technical requirements to design and develop a coherent transponder. One key element was that it had to be lightweight. According to a 1964 Motorola news release, it took 100 pounds of thrust to send one pound of payload into space flight, so it was imperative that the communications equipment did not exceed a certain weight. The transponder also required less power to communicate from the moon to Earth than the power used by a refrigerator light bulb. Once the spacecraft reached a distance of 30,000 miles from Earth, the astronauts completely relied on the unified S-Band transponder, which delivered all communications into a composite signal for transmission, to stay connected. #Apollo50th
  • With one day until the #Apollo50th, #MotorolaSolutions looks back at the Motorola team from Scottsdale, Arizona who created the unified S-Band transponder, which provided voice, television and telemetry communications between the #Apollo11 spacecraft and Earth. In 1963, the contract for the “vital communications link between earth and the Apollo space capsule” was awarded to Motorola Military Electronics Division based in Scottsdale. Our brilliant team was tasked with building a compact #radio transmitter-receiver unit to carry the first words from the moon to Earth. With the successful construction of the device, the Motorola S-Band Transponder became one of our most notable contributions to the Apollo 11 mission. #MotoSolutionsLife
