ANYWAVES has been selected to develop and deliver payload user antennas that will be embedded into the first set of two satellites for Omnispace’s IoT smallsats that Thales Alenia Space will be building for the company.
The satellites will serve to advance the development and implementation of the first global hybrid communications network, which Omnispace will operate in Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO).
The ANYWAVES antenna solution for the Omnispace project was selected by Thales based upon that company’s expertise in deploying commercially available antennas (S-, X-band and GNSS allbands antennas), as well as its industrial expertise in payload antenna design. The Omnispace satellite constellation will support 3GPP-defined standards and operate in the S-band.
According to Pascal Dagras, ANYWAVES CPO, “This contract highlights our capacity to develop tailored antennas to meet the market’s needs. Being selected by an industrial player such as Thales Alenia Space is a great recognition of our know-how. ”
Julie Ruhlmann, Omnispace Program Manager at Thales Alenia Space, added, “ANYWAVES’ capacity to design customized antennas perfectly suited to our needs is the reason why we selected them to work alongside with us on this project.”
