The EXA SSA01 is a wide bandwidth S-band antenna than can accommodate a bandwidth of up to 195 MHz for missions that need great speed and/or bandwidth separation capabilities and great flexibility on the final frequencies selection.

SSA01 is designed to work between 2025 and 2120 MHz and 2200 and 2300 MHz without sacrificing gain. This provides flexibility for customers so they can minimize or avoid having to wait for the final bands and frequency approval. EXA's goal is to enable customers to accelerate their process of getting to space by reducing the typical bottleneck associated with obtaining approval from the relevant telecommunications authority. Customers can file for a frequency use within SSA01’s broad range, helping to potentially save 6 months in the approval process.

Main features:

  • Flight heritage since 2020
  • Custom configurable choice of connectors and/or cables
  • Designed for LEO missions and requirements
  • Manufactured according to NASA and ESA space standards and materials
  • Functional, performance, thermal bake out and vibration tests provided withdocumentation
  • Compatible and compliant with standard deployers and CubeSat Standard
