A news update below regarding the Synchrocube project that aims to provide a complementary solution to navigation systems (GNSS: GALILEO; GPS) in order to provide synchronization functions when GNSS navigation signals are unusable. Synchrocube is part of the French space recovery plan. The main goal is to test this service, using a first satellite placed in low orbit.
Syrlinks is at the initiative of this innovative offer and will provide both the payload and the ground receiver necessary to provide this service. Synchrocube brings together several innovative technologies within a single 6U nanosatellite platform. U-Space, ANYWAVES, COMAT and Syrlinks, 4 French companies specializing in NewSpace are joining forces to promote their respective skills around this project.
Synchrocube relies on a consortium of French space industry players. U-Space, as supplier of the nanosatellite platform, has a key role in this in-orbit demonstration project. ANYWAVES and COMAT are also partners in the project, each contributing their own innovative technologies. By pooling their technologies, the companies in this consortium demonstrate their ability to provide effective and competitive solutions to respond to ambitious space programs.
Synchrocube is a unique project with great potential. Today, the digital economy requires increasingly complex systems with more and more data exchanges. Synchrocube is part of this evolution by meeting the synchronization needs of telecommunication networks, energy, intelligent transport and finance by providing a precise and secure time reference.
“Synchrocube represents a major evolution for Syrlinks. The implementation of a project as sizeable as this opens up new commercial prospects for the company. Syrlinks, initially known as a satellite subsystem manufacturer, is on its way to becoming a service provider.” explains Guy Richards, Syrlinks CEO.
“Being part of the Synchrocube project is very rewarding for ANYWAVES. First, because it allows us to act for our industry in the frame of the “France Relance” program. Then because this will give us the opportunity to take a new technological challenge and to propose world-class state of the art antennas. Finally , this development and this collaboration are perfectly aligned with ANYWAVES’ ambition : becoming the leader of miniature antennas for satellites constellations” comments Dr. Nicolas Capet, ANYWAVES CEO.
