ANYWAVES & SYRLINKS: A Winning Combination for New Space

ANYWAVES and SYRLINKS both share international ambitions and aim at becoming leaders in their respective spheres of activity.

By adding ANYWAVES as product 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.

Partnerships are essential for New Space contractors

According to Guy RICHARD, SYRLINKS’ CEO: “this partnership fits with our strategy to enrich and diversify our commercial space product offering. Being able to offer transmitters and transceivers 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 comments: “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 smallsat constellations and illustrates our ability to respond to the needs of the market.”

About S-band & X-band antennas

The S and X bands antennas 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 transmitter for smallsats.

Both antennas received their space heritage in December 2019 thanks to their actual use on Eyesat and Angels, two French Space Agency’s smallsats currently in orbit.
