Berlin, 24 September 2020. – The French antenna equipment manufacturer Anywaves has been selected by Thales Alenia Space to help develop its satellite-based 5G Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, the company said.
Anywaves will deliver payload user antennas that will be embedded into the initial set of two satellites that Thales has been contracted to build, Anywaves announced. 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).
Based in Toulouse, Anywaves aims at becoming the leader of miniature antennas for critical systems. It is one of the founding members of Newspace Factory , a collective hub of companies from the Aerospace Valley cluster which gathers 12 French SMEs and aims to support the development of the New Space market and to stimulate growth of the industrial sector.
