Filtronic secures second ESA project in six months.

RF- and mm-Wave specialist, Filtronic, has been awarded a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) to study the use of D-band links within future 6G satellite systems. This is part of a collaborative partnership led by leading independent consulting firm, Plum Consulting with Sussex University.

The contract, which will run for 18 months from October 2023, has been awarded through the European Space Agency’s Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) programme, with the support of the UK Space Agency (UKSA). This follows Filtronic’s previous success with the ARTES programme, having been awarded funding to develop a technology for the ESA that enables high-frequency gateway links from satellites to ground stations.
