Advanced MMICs for SOTM and satellites constellations
The proliferation of LEO (Low Earth Orbit) and MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) satellite constellations is changing the requirements needed by satellites and antennas in order to support the bandwidth and beam agility to accommodate the much more challenging tracking requirements uniquely associated with NGSO (non-geostationary orbit) operations. The development of beamforming techniques beyond today’s state-of-the-art is an important demand in the telecommunications industry. WIMMIC is currently developing a novel beamforming system for the ground antenna market. We now want, through SME Innovation Associate programme, to implement our expertise in this area to develop a beamformer to be implemented in telecommunication satellites. This is an important business innovation opportunity as there are no similar products in the market yet. For this, we need and IA expert in space qualified processes.
