Haigh-Farr—Technology Showcase + Product Debuts @ AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites (Event—Antennas)

[SatNews] Recognizing the increasing importance of the small-satellite market, Haigh-Farr, a Business Unit within the Vitec Group, has engineered and deployed a range of innovative antenna products for small satellites to drive communications for this growing segment.

Haigh-Farr will feature its complete range of small satellite capabilities at the AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites (Booth 103), internationally recognized as a premier conference on this segment of the industry.
Haigh-Farr manufactures a range of different products that fit into the broad spectrum of small satellites, a class of products broken down into individual classifications. From minis to micros to nanos (representing a weight range of 1,100 to 2.2 pounds), down to the pico and Femtosatellite (representing a weight range of 2.2 pounds to 3.5 ounces), Haigh-Farr’s advanced modeling and manufacturing processes address the distinctive communication challenges presented by each class of satellite with requisite antenna designs.

David Farr, CEO of Haigh-Farr, said, “Small satellites present a unique engineering opportunity to provide robust antennas specifically designed to accommodate the extreme size and weight restrictions of this class, while still accomplishing the different levels of communications needed for success. Our antenna solutions are built to survive the harsh environment of space—from the shock of launch, to the radiation, temperature and vacuum conditions encountered with each mission.”
