The Anywaves Design Process

1 - Preliminary Design Review (PDR)
2 - Critical Design Review (CDR)
3 - Manufacture Readiness Review (MRR)
4 - Test Readiness Review (TRR)
5 - Test Review Board (TRB)
Preliminary Design Review (PDR)

In the PDR phase, the initial design concepts are analyzed and reviewed. We conduct an exhaustive state-of-the-art analysis of the current antennas concepts in order to select the most promising ones. Then, we perform preliminary designs on the chosen concepts to adjust them to our needs and estimate their performances. This crucial step allows us to identify a baseline and a back-up solutions.

This early stage ensures that the project’s objectives, requirements, and constraints are clearly identified and understood. The foundation of every antenna design is laid here, and it informs the subsequent stages of development.

Critical Design Review (CDR)

During the CDR stage, the finalized design undergoes a rigorous review to ensure it meets all technical and functional specifications.

At this point, any potential issues are identified and resolved, guaranteeing that the project is ready to transition from the design phase to the prototyping stage.

Manufacture Readiness Review (MRR)

The MRR is a pivotal phase conducted after the CDR, where the readiness for manufacturing is assessed. This involves evaluating the feasibility of mass-producing the antenna design, assessing material sourcing, and ensuring all subsystems are mature enough for production.
It’s the bridge between design approval and actual manufacturing, ensuring that the design is not just good on paper but is also manufacturable at scale.

Test Readiness Review (TRR)

The TRR is a crucial phase where all test procedures, configurations, and criteria are thoroughly reviewed.
This ensures that the prototype is ready for the rigorous testing that will assess its suitability for space missions.

Test Review Board (TRB)

At the TRB stage, the results of the various tests are evaluated to confirm the antenna’s performance and readiness for production.
Here, any findings that could affect the system’s reliability or performance are addressed.

Fusion of Thermal Mechanical and Radio Frequency Expertise

Our design philosophy is underpinned by the harmonious collaboration between our Thermal Mechanical and Radio Frequency engineers. This inter-disciplinary approach leads to optimized designs that are compact yet high-performing, meeting both mechanical and functional (RF) requirements.

Material & Technological Mastery

Our COTS antennas are constructed with an aluminum cavity, renowned for its strength and lightness. This material is further enhanced with a SurTec 650 chemical surface treatment to protect against atomic oxygen in Low Earth Orbit (LEO).
This cavity houses a variety of technologies, from Printed Circuit Board (PCB) to metamaterials, forming the technological “secret ingredient” that exemplifies the Anywaves expertise.


Protection Against Extreme Conditions

To safeguard against electrostatic radiations and significant temperature variations, our antennas are equipped with a radome covered in white anti-ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) paint. This provides an additional layer of durability and reliability from launch to deorbit.


Thermal Mechanical Analysis

Our design process incorporates comprehensive Thermal Mechanical analysis and testing to ensure our antennas can withstand the harsh conditions encountered during flight and launch phases. Our dual focus on thermal and mechanical factors ensures that each antenna is not just robust but also optimized for the functions it is meant to serve.
