Sylatech‘s new product development success, whilst partnering in the development of Ku/Ka band Multi Port Amplifiers project, was a perfect fit for Airbus Defence and Space.
The original European Space Agency funded project sought to adopt novel technology to drive an improved performance, whilst reducing mass and power, against other multiplexer approaches.
A Fresh Perspective
Backed by our strong reputation and expertise in designing complex antenna feed networks, Sylatech brought new design ideas to challenge established Space Industry vendors.
Through the application of innovative waveguide designs, Sylatech was able to deliver a compact and lightweight solution with exceptional performance. Despite having to undergo the additional requirements of supplier qualification, the project was successfully delivered on-time.
Sylatech’s novel designs will be launched into orbit on EUTELSAT 172B in 2017
The innovative Ku-band payload which forms part of this satellite, is specifically designed for in-flight broadband and live TV services. It features multiple user spots optimised to serve densely used Asian and trans-Pacific flight paths
Through the success in demonstrating our strong design and manufacturing capability, new opportunities are already under development.
