Antwerp Space NV, a subsidiary of OHB AG (ISIN: DE0005936124, Prime Standard) successfully delivered 2 Omnisat equipments to two institutional customers in China.

The equipment will be used for checking out of high speed satellite transmitters and in ground stations for the reception of earth observation data. The Omnisat of Antwerp Space has won the international tender because of its unique capability to deliver up to 3 independent high speed satellite receivers in a single chassis at any given intermediate frequency. This allowed the customers to have a very flexible receiver, at a competitive price.

Antwerp Space staff spent 2 weeks in China, together with its partner AA SYSTEL and its local Chinese partner. During this fortnight, extensive training was given to the customers’ team. Following the training, the Omnisat equipment was integrated into the system of the customer, which then led to a successful acceptance testing campaign.

Mrs Wang Huiqin, Asia Area Sales & Marketing Director of AA SYSTEL, comments: “It was one of our most important projects with Antwerp Space up to now. The success in the delivery of 2 OG3 units is the result of the Antwerp Space team’s hard work and End user’s excellent cooperation.”

Guy Van Dijck, Antwerp Space’s General Manager, comments: “This is a major step for Antwerp Space to re-introduce its Omnisat data acquisition system in the market. We are excited to be able to demonstrate our capabilities in the domain of Earth Observation modems.”

The new generation of Omnisat will allow Antwerp Space to offer a unique multichannel solution to its customers at an attractive price.
