To implement cutting edge waveguide solutions. As the need for ground and space based communications has evolved — as demands have changed, standards have been raised, and technology has advanced — we’ve grown with it while keeping to our mission: to help our customers grow by solving and supporting our customers’ waveguide challenges.

Scientific Waveguide Components & Capabilities

Our engineering teams are adept at designing and manufacturing waveguide components that meet precise specifications, whether it’s for a particle accelerator, a radio telescope, or a plasma research facility. Our custom solutions include heavy wall waveguides for high-power applications, thin wall waveguides for specific frequency tunings, and double ridge waveguides for broad bandwidth requirements.

One of the key challenges in scientific applications is the need for extreme precision and minimal signal loss. Space Machine’s waveguide components are designed to offer low attenuation and high power handling capabilities, ensuring that they deliver the highest level of performance and reliability. This precision is critical in scientific settings where even the smallest measurement error can significantly impact research outcomes.
