Radio Frequency and Communications Systems Engineering Services

Flexitech Aerospace Lab

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

Communications System Design

We have extensive experience and expertise in all aspects of communications system design, integration and testing, both on spacecraft and the associated ground station systems. We understand the bandwidth constraints for spacecraft telemetry recovery and the complexity of command and control. Our detailed system performance and link analysis identifies the key design requirements and enables us to optimize your communications path to ensure that your system’s critical downlink data availability is maximized. We then translate that design into hardware, integrated as a system and then work with you to test and verify that the design meets both the mission needs and regulatory compliance.

Test up to 40GHz

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.
