Cobham’s Waveguides and Assemblies Used in OneWeb Satellites

OneWeb Satellites has successfully launched the first satellites of its ambitious 600 spacecraft constellation. OneWeb Satellites is a joint venture between OneWeb and Airbus to launch a constellation of satellites into the low Earth orbit to deliver internet broadband services to consumers around the world. The spacecrafts included Cobham's Ku and Ka-band waveguides. Waveguides enable the communications systems on the satellites by channeling electromagnetic waves from one point to another.

Cobham offers a full range of rectangular (size WR-22 to WR430) and double ridge (WRD-180 to WR430) waveguides, supporting industry-standard microwave tests and measurements for low and high-power laboratory applications. In addition, Cobham can create assemblies of passive and active microwave and coaxial components to custom specifications, allowing the development and production of complete modular transmit/receive devices. Cobham specializes in custom bracketry and integrated waveguides from cast to 3D printed to hybrid solutions.

Cobham provides critical solutions for communication on land, at sea, and in the air and space, by moving data through off-the-shelf and customized products and subsystems including RF, microwave, and high-reliability microelectronics, antenna apertures and motion control solutions.
