Launchers and space vehicles

Within the ATV (Automatic Transfer Vehicle) supply mission to the International Space Station (ISS), we are responsible for the design and production of various types of antennas involved in communications with TDRSS (Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System) satellites and for the proximity link to the station.

We also supply telemetry antennas for the small European launcher VEGA.

In addition, we have actively participated in the IXV (Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle) ESA project for the development of a reusable vehicle capable of supporting atmospheric re-entry.

Geostationary communications satellites

We are a regular supplier for all major platforms of the leading integrators worldwide, providing TT&C and payload equipment in all frequency bands.

Mobile communications satellites

Our contributions to projects such as ICO G1, TerreStar 1, Alphasat Inmarsat XL, EuropaSat, and recently Inmarsat 6, which include hundreds of LNAs (Low Noise Amplifiers) for MSS (Mobile Satellite Services) applications and other passive devices such as filters and diplexers, test our ability to support very demanding schedules with the production of a large number of units.

We are also in charge of the telemetry and tele-command antennas for the Iridium NEXT and Globalstar-2G satellite constellations. In the latter, we additionally supply 24 Power Detection Units in S-band.

Telecommunications satellite constellations in MEO orbit

In TRYO Aerospace we have been responsible for the design and production of all TT&C antennas in Ka-band for the O3b satellite constellation in MEO orbit.

Space exploration missions

More than thirty SSPAs (Solid State Power Amplifiers) in X-band currently aboard the GAIA space observatory are TRYO Aerospace brand.

The Back End Modules (BEM) in Q-band of another European space observatory, PLANCK, are also a product of our capabilities. In addition, the TT&C system for telemetry and tele-command of the main programs for space exploration developed by the European Space Agency are based on our antennas, designed to withstand the harsh operating conditions typical of these types of missions: BEPICOLOMBO, EXOMARS-2016, EXOMARS-2018, GAIA, HERSCHEL, LISA PATHFINDER, PLANCK, ROSETTA, SOLAR ORBITER.

Earth observation missions

In TRYO Aerospace we have designed and produced more than 200 units for a total of 44 satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), for both scientific programs of Earth observation and the intelligence applications of various government entities.

In particular, for the SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity) mission of the ESA, we have been responsible for 75 L-band receivers (called LICEF), including patch antennas and integrated filters. This unit functions as the eyes of this mission, dedicated to the study of ocean salinity and soil moisture. Each LICEF unit contains 11 MMICs designed at our location in Barcelona in a total of 6 MHICs, allowing exceptionally good performance in terms of noise figure power consumption and mass.

Meteorology

At TRYO Aerospace we are responsible for supplying various equipment designed for meteorological applications in both European (ESA/EUMETSAT) and American (NASA/NOAA) environments.

Having participated in the first European project in polar orbit, MetOp, with data download antennas, various filters, and the SSPAs (Solid State Power Amplifiers) of the LRPT (Low Rate Picture Transmission) instrument, we extend our contribution to majority of radio frequency instruments that comprise the new Metop Second Generation mission. We design and produce the Back End Modules (BEMS) of the MWS (MicroWave Sounder) radiometers, MWI (MicroWave Imager) and ICI (Ice Cloud Imager). For the ICI, we are also in charge of the Local Oscillators, and for the Radio Occultation (RO) system we are responsible for the Frequency Generation Module (FGM). In addition to these systems, at TRYO Aerospace we design and produce 200 integrated channel filters in different types of BEMS, as well as S-band antennas (SBA) for the satellite platform.

As for meteorological missions in geostationary orbit, we are responsible for the design and manufacture of the Data Collection System (DCS) instrument of the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG), as well as integrating it together with the GEOSAR instrument in its corresponding panel, and for carrying out the environmental testing regimen before delivering it to the customer for later installation on the satellite. The UHF-band global coverage antenna for the new series of American GOES satellites is also a product of our abilities.

Galileo navigation system

The C-band Mission Receiver is one of the most critical devices aboard the Galileo satellites, responsible for receiving integrity data that allow proper synchronization of the atomic clocks on board.

At TRYO Aerospace we are in charge of this unit for all satellites in the constellation, as well as the TT&C antennas.

Galileo MEOSAR

The Search & Rescue transponders included in the Galileo satellites during their orbit validation phase are designed by TRYO Aerospace. In addition, we are responsible for the design and production of the communications antenna for this payload for all satellites in the constellation.

This system allows the rescue of people in distress anywhere in the world.
