ANYWAVES has just been selected by Thales Alenia Space, the prime contractor developing OMNISPACE’s satellite-based Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure. ANYWAVES will deliver payload user antennas that will be embedded into the initial set of two satellites that Thales has been contracted to build. The satellites will serve to advance the development and implementation of the first global hybrid communications network, which Omnispace will operate in non-geostationary orbit (NGSO).
The ANYWAVES payload antennas will be integrated into a NanoAvionics platform, and will be delivered by the second trimester of 2021. The small form factor of the payload antennas are optimized to support Omnispace’s unique mission of delivering satellite-based IoT communications direct to the device.
This selection by Thales Alenia Space demonstrates ANYWAVES’ ability to quickly deliver reliable and competitive products for its clients’ payloads. It will also offer to this European « pure player » antenna equipment manufacturer a flight heritage regarding the satellite IoT market.
