SWISSto12, Tyvak to offer mini-geo telecom satellite missions

SWISSto12, a provider of 3D-printed telecommunications equipment, and Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems, Inc., a Terran Orbital Corporation, have announced a partnership to offer mini-GEO satellites, the company said.

The evolution of mini GEO missions (GEO satellites of 100-500kg) is complementary to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) constellations offered by the satellite communications industry. However, the market lacks experienced and trusted mini-GEO solution providers that can offer reliability and high performance at a price point compatible with the market´s new expectations.

The combination of Tyvak´s mission operations, platform, and payload expertise, along with SWISSto12´s end-to-end telecom payload and 3-D printed RF products, brings a new level of innovation to the GEO market. Together they will deliver highly efficient and customized min-GEO satellites at competitive costs, covering frequency bands from X-band to Ka-band and Q/V bands. Capitalizing on engineering teams from both Europe and the US, Tyvak and SWISSto12 aim to expedite the delivery of mini-GEO satellite fleets.

SWISSto12 is a provider of telecommunications equipment for the satellite and aerospace industries. The company´s advanced 3D printing technologies deliver lightweight, highly performing and competitive communication products and payload systems. For more information visit
