Sylatech Wins Long Term Radar Defence Contract

A YORKSHIRE-based manufacturing firm has secured a multi-million pound 10 year contract to supply a major European defence contractor with a system that can be deployed on land and sea as a surveillance and “threat detection” radar. Sylatech, which is based in Kirkbymoorside in North Yorkshire, is gearing up for a period of significant [...]


A multi million pound investment in a new manufacturing facility and associated aerospace and aeronautic jobs is being planned by specialist manufacturer Sylatech in Pickering. Plans for a new £4 million 55,000sqft production facility and further 130,000sqft of commercial floor space have been submitted to Ryedale District Council by national property consultant Carter Jonas [...]


When Pyser-SGI approached Sylatech for support in the production of their Francis Barker range of Liquid Prismatic Compasses, it was clear that quality was paramount. Ranking among the world’s finest compasses, and with a long history of active use in armed forces globally, Liquid Prismatic Compasses remain a key part of today’s military equipment. The [...]


Waveguide to Coaxial Transitions Sylatech’s waveguide to coaxial transitions are available in a variety of connector configurations. Our sizes range from WG6 to WG22 (WR975 to WR28) along with double-ridged, reduced height and end launch variants, with a range of connectors that include N type, extended range N type, SMA, extended range SMA, K and [...]

Pressure Windows

Sylatech’s pressure windows permit the sealing of waveguide components and assemblies when pressurization or inert gas filling is required. Covering a broad range of waveguide sizes from WG11 to WG22 (WR229 to WR28) at low power, our windows are available in all popular flange configurations and can also be adapted to suit custom designs if required. Low [...]

Double-ridged designs are also available and our [...]


Sylatech’s ultra short twist allows the orientation of the waveguide to be rotated 90 degrees in an extremely short length.  Designed to be bolted between two waveguide flanges, they are considerably shorter than conventional twists and yet give comparable electrical performance. Waveguide twists are available in aluminium or copper alloys and standard designs can be [...]


Our waveguide tees can be integrated into our monopulse comparator products and are also incorporated into large assembly and sub assembly units. They come in a range of sizes from WG6 to WG22 (WR650 to WR28) each offering excellent VSWR across the selected band and are tuned to cover 10-15% of the full bandwidth. They [...]

Loads & Attenuators
