The companies will jointly develop a suite of communication products for smallsat, HAPS, UAV and airborne applications that require high-performance and extremely low size, weight and power. Development will initially focus on a range of advanced Ka-band transceivers with integrated gigabit Software Defined Radios (SDRs), satellite terminals, phased array antennas and network management systems.
Steve McHugh, Chairman of TXMission, said, “This is another exciting collaboration that combines our unique SDR technology with Arralis’ outstanding RF capabilities, allowing us to provide a range of complete advanced satellite and airborne communications systems.”
Mike Gleaves, CEO of Arralis, said, “This is excellent news for satellite integrators seeking a high data rate communications platform. This strategic partnership enables a one-stop risk-free route to implementation, with minimum required expertise and maximum benefits.”
