  • 30 GHz Dielectric Resonator MUX/DEMUX

    Development and Qualification of a 30 GHz Dielectric Resonator Combining Multiplexer and Demultiplexer

  • Taosatt

    The project entailed the development of an “Always Online” single enclosure, outdoor grade, data router capable of connecting local users and systems over wired and wireless Ethernet to remote sites vial cellular and satellite communications networks.

  • Half-Height Antenna System

    Providing a lower-profile antenna for Satellite communications unlocks larger markets as long as the price does not rise disproportionately. Our design offers on the relatively low profile achievable with the lens concept with uncompromised RF performance and at a cost comparable to that of a reflector based system.

  • Mx-SAT

    Mx-SAT is a C&G Technology project that covers research tracks on candidate improvements for the Newtec Dialog® system containing the platform and terminals. The Newtec Dialog® platform is a scalable and flexible multiservice satellite communications platform that allows satellite service providers to build and expand their network easily as...


    The aim of the project is to develop a Frequency Flexible Command Receiver Prototype Flight Model and to have it launched on board Eutelsat E8WB. Performance data are to be documented during unit production, Satellite IOT and after an operational period of 12 months.


    High performance, narrow-band, miniaturized filters for satellite communications in L and S band based on dielectric loaded cavities.
