In a resounding affirmation of France’s dedication to space exploration, the government is propelling the nation’s space sector forward through initiatives like France 2030.

Led by the General Directorate of Enterprises in collaboration with the Directorate General of Armament (DGA) and the Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DGRI), France 2030 aims to foster innovation and competitiveness in the New Space sector.

Recently, President Macron announced 11 recipients, securing a public commitment of €500 million towards the New Space sector. Among these recipients, Anywaves emerged as a frontrunner, securing success in the ‘Development and Industrialization of Satellite Constellations and Enabling Technologies’ call for projects under the France 2030 initiative.

Project I-ANT: Transformative Antenna Technology

At the forefront of this transformative initiative is Anywaves’ groundbreaking project “I-ANT,” developed in collaboration with Connektica. This venture represents a significant leap forward in intelligent antenna technology for satellite constellations. By harnessing digitalization solutions, Anywaves and Connektica aim to streamline industrial collaborations and optimize production processes. This strategic partnership, supported by France 2030, underscores the importance of collaboration and innovation in shaping the future of the space industry.

Dr. Nicolas Capet, CEO of Anywaves, emphasizes the pivotal role of this collaboration in scaling up operations within the New Space landscape. “It’s a collaboration for a change in dimension,” he states, highlighting the need for industrial resilience and reliability as New Space enterprises evolve to meet market demands.
