SENER presents its comprehensive radio frequency communication systems at the 2018 European Microwave Week17/09/2018 (Spain)
For the first time, the engineering and technology group SENER will attend the 2018 European Microwave Week, held at the Madrid Trade Fair Center (IFEMA) on September 23rd-28th. SENER, which recently acquired the group TRYO Aerospace & Electronics (which includes the companies TRYO Aerospace and RYMSA RF), will have a single stand to present their joint capabilities as experts in comprehensive radio frequency communication systems, a cross-cutting technology of interest in the space and defense sectors, and which also has applications in air traffic control and science facilities.
On this regard, SENER engineers will be presenting two papers: Fernando Martín will give a conference on the paper "On Board Deep Space Steerable Antennas for Extremely Harsh Environments”, while Rafael García will present “Latest Filter Developments at TRYO Aerospace, SENER Group.”
Of the main radio frequency communication systems exhibited at the stand, particularly worthy of mention are: antennas and pointing mechanisms for the Solar Orbiter, BepiColombo, Juice, and Euclid space missions; the high-capacity multi-band data link system for command and control networks and unmanned vehicle payloads; and systems for air traffic control and for the European research center CERN.
In terms of products for radio frequency communication systems, SENER will present a range of active equipment (low noise amplifiers, down converters, power detector modules and solid state power amplifiers), passive components (rotary joints, filters and multiplexers, couplers and hybrid couplers, adapters, etc.), telemetry and telecommand antennas, feed horns, medium and high gain antennas, reflectors and specific purpose antennas (fixed and steerable). Also electromechanical components that offer different antenna and rotary pedestal solutions for primary and secondary surveillance radar systems for air traffic control, as well advances in passive equipment for scientific installations (coaxial line components and wave-guided transmission systems).
For more than 50 years, SENER has been a leading supplier of electromechanical components and systems, navigation systems (GNC/AOCS), communications systems, and astronomy and optics for the space sector. SENER currently participates in major programs of the European Space Agency (ESA), the North American Space Agency (NASA) (such as Hubble, Galileo, MetOp, Rosetta, Gaia, MTG, Herschel & Planck, IXV, Proba 3, Mars 2020 or the Curiosity rover in Mars), and the European Space Observatory (ESO).
In the commercial market of satellite communications, the group is an established supplier for the main satellite manufacturers of the world, with an amount of 10,000 hardware units for more than 1,400 satellites. With TRYO’s acquisition, SENER becomes a leading company in the supply of telemetry and telecommand antennas, and low noise amplifiers for Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) satellites, and is an active participant in all the main constellations, such as Globalstar-2, O3B and Iridium NEXT, as well as in the so-called New Space (OneWeb).
Besides, in the defense sector, SENER supplies electromechanical systems (it is a center of excellence for actuation and control systems for missiles), communications systems and COMINT (Communications Intelligence), and provides helicopter modernization services to clients such as the Spanish Ministry of Defense and large contractors, including Diehl, MBDA and SAAB.
In this regard, SENER has developed the skills required to take on complete industrial projects in major space and defense programs and can offer its own technological solutions for entire onboard communications systems. Equally, the group has all the design, manufacturing and testing in-house capabilities to competitively respond to the telecommunications market demands.
