Safran Selected to Provide Equipment for LeoStella Satellite Constellations

LeoStella, a manufacturer of small satellite constellations in the United States, has announced its continued partnership with Syrlinks, a Safran Electronics & Defense company based in Rennes, France. The collaboration will see Syrlinks equipping LeoStella’s latest-generation LS-300 satellite buses with its high-performance N-SPHERE GNSS receiver for low-Earth orbit applications.

This agreement further solidifies the relationship between Syrlinks and LeoStella, as they work together to integrate the N-SPHERE GNSS receiver into the LS-300 platform. The N-SPHERE solution, developed by Syrlinks, implements state-of-the-art positioning and synchronization techniques to achieve real-time precise onboard orbit determination. With its ability to synchronize with various GNSS systems and offer high-precision positioning, the N-SPHERE receiver positions Syrlinks as an important player in the international space industry.
