Satellite antennas built with additive manufacturing – with ANYWAVES

Podcast

A podcast discussing innovations in satellite antenna technology and the use of additive manufacturing for space – with ANYWAVES

A discussion about how satellite antenna technology is changing to meet the needs of the modern space industry.

In this episode we speak with Nicolas Capet, the CEO of ANYWAVES – a French space company based in Toulouse and specializing in the design and development of satellite antennas. We discuss:

  • Changes in antenna design brought about by greater demand in the NewSpace industry
  • How additive manufacturing is used to create antenna systems for new applications
  • The use of ceramic materials to enhance performance and efficiency
  • Where the satellite antenna market is heading and the opportunities of deep space missions
