Flexitech Aerospace provides Radio Frequency (RF) and Communications systems engineering services for a wide range of satellite and ground applications.

Flexitech Aerospace offers RF component analysis, design and manufacturing capabilities. Together with our RF test lab facilities we can support your satellite RF engineering needs up to 40GHz. We have extensive experience and expertise in all aspects of RF design, integration and testing, for applications on spacecraft and ground stations. Our team has provided engineering design services and components for a wide range of satellite and ground station applications at LEO, MEO and GEO orbits, from Cube satellites to large spacecraft. We have RF components that were designed, manufactured and tested in our facility, currently on the International Space Station supporting the Maritime Awareness payload known as the GLASS program.

Our RF analysis and test lab has the latest test equipment and facilities where we are able to test and verify designs meet their functional and performance requirements from low frequency up to 40GHz. As well as working on projects in our own lab, we can also work with you at your facility and run tests with your team on-site using our lab equipment.

The key areas where we can provide expertise and support for your program are:
