ANYWAVES and Syrlinks have signed a partnership agreement for the supply and marketing of S- and X-band antennas on an international scale.
On June the 23rd, Nicolas Capet and Guy Richard, respectively ANYWAVES and Syrlinks CEOs, signed a partnership agreement at SYRLINKS’ headquarters giving SYRLINKS exclusive distribution of S- and X-band antennas manufactured by ANYWAVES.
By adding ANYWAVES as an international innovative products supplier, Syrlinks is now able to provide a full and complete range of innovative equipment for smallsats. This international positioning will provide ANYWAVES and Syrlinks with valuable new business opportunities.
Whatever the size, partnerships are essential for New Space contractors since they can truly speed up innovation, the business process and time to market for new products.
The S- and X-bands antenna designed by ANYWAVES are telemetry antennas for smallsats. The S-band one works on frequencies from 2.025 and 2.29 GHz and is optimized for platforms’ telemetry and telecommand. This antenna is associated with Syrlinks S-band EWC31 transceiver for smallsats.
The X-band one works on higher frequencies (from 8.025 up to 8.4GHz). It has been developed for high data rate payload telemetry and is associated with Syrlinks high data rate EWC27 transceiver for smallsats.
Both antennas received their space heritage in December of 2019, thanks to their actual use on Eysat and Angels, two French Space Agency’s smallsats that are currently on-orbit.
According to Guy Richard, “This partnership fits with our strategy to enrich and diversify our commercial space product offering. Being able to offer transmitters and receivers combined with compatible antennas is a real value-add for our clients. This association with ANYWAVES allows us to align perfectly with the needs of this new and rapidly developing market.”
ANYWAVES’ CEO, Nicolas Capet, added, “Our S-band and X-band antennas have reached their industrial maturity and this agreement allows us to boost our international ambitions. Being associated with a player such as Syrlinks also confirms our positioning as antenna experts for smallsats constellations and illustrates our ability to respond to the needs of the market.”
