Flight Heritage

Anywaves has a wealth of experience and expertise in developing GNSS antennas for space navigation. Our past successes in developing and launching GNSS antennas into space have given us valuable insights and knowledge that enable us to provide high-quality products to our customers. We take pride in our ability to quickly move from prototype designs to fully operational flight models, demonstrating our commitment to innovation and reliability in the development of GNSS antennas for space navigation.


Do you propose an EM (Engineering Model) and/or a FM (Flight Model) item?

As on all our products, we propose two different versions for our Navigation antennas: an engineering model and a flight model. Both have the same electrical performances as they use the same materials and processes. On flight models, we perform meticulous and rigorous acceptance tests.

What are test caps useful for? Can I use your test caps on any antenna?

A test cap is the perfect tool to simplify your antenna testing process. It allows highly reproducible measurements in all your environments such as clean rooms or thermal chambers. Using this equipment eliminates the need for RF tests to be carried out in an anechoic chamber, saving you significant amounts of time and money.

However, it’s important to note that our test caps are specifically designed for use with ANYWAVES antennas. Due to variations in antenna designs and specifications among different suppliers, we cannot guarantee compatibility with antennas produced by other suppliers. To ensure optimal protection and performance, we recommend using our test caps exclusively with ANYWAVES antennas, as they are tailored to fit our specific antenna models.

What if my specs are different from the Navigation antennas on your website?

At ANYWAVES, we understand that every project may have unique requirements. We offer customization options to tailor our antennas to your specific needs. Our experienced engineering team can work closely with you to develop custom antenna solutions that align with your specifications. Whether it’s modifying existing designs or creating entirely new antennas, we are committed to delivering antennas that meet your exact requirements. Feel free to contact us to discuss your specific needs, and we’ll be glad to assist you with a customized solution.

I don’t know which Navigation (GNSS) antenna to buy, can you help?

Absolutely! Choosing the right Navigation (GNSS) antenna is crucial for accurate positioning and navigation. Our team of experts is here to assist you in finding the perfect solution. By understanding your specific requirements, such as GNSS constellations, signal tracking capabilities, and mechanical constraints, we can provide personalized recommendations from our range of Navigation antennas. We are dedicated to helping you select the optimal antenna that ensures reliable and precise positioning data for your applications. Feel free to contact us for expert guidance and support in choosing the right Navigation (GNSS) antenna.

Is the EIDP (Engineering Item Data Package) included? What does it contain?

Yes, the EIDP (Engineering Item Data Package) is included with our ANYWAVES antennas. The EIDP contains comprehensive documentation that provides essential technical details and specifications of the antenna. It typically includes :

  • Acceptance test reports
  • ICD (Interface Control Document)
  • Mechanical envelope
  • User Manual
  • Certificate of conformity


We ensure that the EIDP accompanies each antenna purchase to support your integration and operational needs.

Are your Navigation antennas in reception or in emission?

Our Navigation (GNSS) antennas are designed primarily for reception purposes. They are specifically optimized to receive signals from global navigation satellite systems, such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, or BeiDou. These antennas offer excellent signal acquisition capabilities, ensuring accurate positioning and navigation.

Which GNSS constellations are covered by our navigation antennas?

Our navigation antennas at ANYWAVES are designed to support multiple GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) constellations. Our antennas provide coverage for all constellations such as GPS (Global Positioning System) from the United States, GLONASS from Russia, Galileo from the European Union, and BeiDou from China. This ensures compatibility and enables our antennas to receive signals from a diverse range of satellites, maximizing positioning accuracy and availability for our customers across different regions and applications.

What are the key features of a Navigation (GNSS) antenna?

Our Navigation (GNSS) antennas at Anywaves offer a range of key features that make them essential for accurate positioning and navigation. These antennas are designed to receive signals from all the GNSS constellations, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou. They provide steady performances on all the GNSS bands (wide beam coverage, polarization purity, phase center offset, etc.), ensuring reliable and precise positioning data. Our GNSS antennas are designed to withstand harsh space environmental conditions, maintaining optimal performance and durability throughout missions. With their compact size, rugged construction, and exceptional performance, our Navigation antennas are the ideal choice for applications requiring precise positioning and reliable GNSS reception.

Can I buy a single antenna or is there a minimum order? How quick can I receive my order?

Whether your project is big or small, we can provide a single EM antenna for testing as well as cater for volume orders. Depending on your lead time and our availibility, we may even be able to ship it within a few days!
