The second-phase contract is valued at USD $2.9 Million and will drive the development of a next-gen satellite communications system. Kista, Sweden // Feb.1, 2024 // Sivers Semiconductors AB (STO: SIVE) today announced the expansion of its chipset agreement with Thorium Space. This USD 2.9 million (approx. 30 MSEK) second phase will focus on the advanced development and validation of the chipsets designed in the initial phase, further laying the groundwork for future large-scale manufacturing. The company anticipates recognizing revenue up to USD $2.1 million from this contract in the year 2024.
This new contract represents the continuing and deepening partnership between Sivers Wireless, a business unit of Sivers Semiconductors, and the Polish satellite communication systems pioneer.
The achievement marks a significant step forward in Thorium Space's preparations for its planned space deployment, targeting the launch of these sophisticated satellite operations.
Sivers' advanced Ka-band technology, with its focus on electronic beam steering, is key for efficient satellite communications systems. This technology significantly reduces the size, weight, and space needed for satellite transceivers, which are crucial for space missions.
By replacing mechanically steered antennas with electronic alternatives, Sivers enhances operational efficiency and reduces maintenance. This is particularly beneficial for satellite communications, ensuring reliable links in challenging space conditions. Additionally, these solutions offer improved broadband performance with high efficiency and low energy use, making Sivers Wireless a prime choice for compact, efficient, and high-performing telecommunications.
"Our continued joint development with Thorium Space marks a significant step in advancing geostationary telecommunications satellites," stated Anders Storm, Group CEO of Sivers Semiconductors. "This partnership represents a powerful convergence of innovation and expertise, collectively pushing the frontiers of satellite communications technology forward."
