Syrlinks, partner of satellite constellations
In recent years, several low-earth orbit (at an altitude of about 1,000 km) constellation projects have emerged. By becoming one of the main suppliers of radio equipment for these large satellite constellations, Syrlinks is becoming a major player in the Newspace field.
Syrlinks has relationships with customers all over the world, on 4 continents and in more than 18 countries. Syrlinks radios are used for all types of space missions: earth observation, telecommunications, scientific studies, lunar exploration and are designed to be integrated into micro-satellites, mini satellites but also into nano satellites (cube satellites).
In recent years, several low-earth orbit (at an altitude of about 1,000 km) constellation projects have emerged. By becoming one of the main suppliers of radio equipment for these large satellite constellations, Syrlinks is becoming a major player in the Newspace field. These satellite constellations are mainly intended for mobile telephony or Internet broadcasting on Earth. To operate, they require many satellites, while only three geostationary satellites are needed to cover the Earth's surface. By creating such a network, end-to-end latency (ping) is reduced, ensuring a better experience for users of Internet services. The cost of such a large number of satellites is partly offset by the reduction in size and economies of scale achieved during production.
By taking part in such projects, the Syrlinks production line has been impacted. To cope with this significant increase, Syrlinks has doubled its production area, set up a clean room and new equipment. The company has thus taken a new dimension by becoming the supplier of radio equipment for several of these new space constellations.
Syrlinks is currently in contact with about ten customers for nanosatellite constellations (from 20 to 50 satellites per constellation). For micro-satellite constellations, Syrlinks works with several major players in Europe, North America and Asia.
