Advantech Partners with TXMission to Develop SmallSat, UAV/Airborne Products

Advantech Wireless Technologies has signed a sales and distribution agreement with the California and Watford, England based TXMission, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance SmallSat modems for the New Space Industry.

The companies will together develop a comprehensive suite of SmallSat, Airborne, and Comms-On-The-Move (COTM) communication products for markets requiring versatile, extremely low size, weight and power (SWaP) products that provide leading-edge performance. The range of fully integrated SmallSat and UAV/Airborne products to be developed will include advanced RF transceivers, multi-gigabit modems for onboard and ground segment applications, low SWaP satellite terminals, antennas, network management systems, and 5G technology solutions.

Advantech plans to integrate their microwave RF technology with the TXMission modem, resulting in a system-level solution that will work across multiple Satcom markets. Steve McHugh, Chairman of TXMission, stated that this is an exciting development that combines their unique SDR technology with Advantech’s renowned RF capabilities.

The companies will be participating in the Satellite 2020 exhibition that will take place on March 10-12, 2020 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.
