Syrlinks expands its range of products for nano-satellites

A payload - SPEKTREYE - and a GNSS receiver - N-SPHERE - join the Syrlinks nanosatellite product catalogue.

Two nano satellite equipments join the catalogue of Syrlinks, one of the leading suppliers of radio frequency equipment for the space field. The SPEKTREYE payload and the N-SPHERE GNSS receiver thus enable Syrlinks to reach a wider customer base thanks to a diversified offer. The nano-satellite product catalogue now includes more than 10 products with different functions: radios, antennas, payloads and GNSS receivers.


N-SPHERE is an evolution of the G-SPHERE-S GNSS receiver, flight-tested during the MICROSCOPE mission. N-SPHERE is a multi-constellation & multi-frequency GNSS Precise Orbit Determination Receiver mainly for LEO applications able to provide an excellent on-board real-time navigation solution accuracy of below one meter. N-SPHERE has been developed with CNES support. Syrlinks location devices are robust, low power consumption and compact.The receiver is designed for micro and mino platforms.

The structure of this GNSS receiver is organized around a reconfigurable architecture. The GNSS function is split in two main parts according to the real time requirements of the processing and navigation operations. N-SPHERE receiver is compatible of GPS and GALILEO signals and supports L1/E1 and L5/E5 frequency bands. In option, N-SPHERE can operate in E6 frequency band. Navigator orbital is also available as an option.The firmware can be uploading during the flight/mission. N-SPHERE GNSS receiver is ITAR free and based on COTS components.


SPEKTREYE is an RF Spectrum Monitoring payload oriented for Cube/Nano satellites. It has been designed by Syrlinks to meet the upcoming demand for RF sensing and Surveillance. Low Earth Orbit (LEO) missions around 500/700 km are especially appropriate.

SPEKTREYE payload offers spectrum monitoring in wideband and/or narrowband mode. This payload integrated a built-In mass memory for mission data storage: raw I/Q or post-processed data. An Optional X-band Transmitter is available for mission data downlink. It operates in the 8 025–8 400 MHz frequency range.

The unit integrates a System-On-Chip processor and performs as a software defined radio. A wide range of digital signal processing features are offered such as Channelizers and Periodogram.
