4Links designs, manufactures, supplies and supports an extensive range of SpaceWire test equipment, network simulators, development systems and IP products.
The 4Links product range is renowned as being the most comprehensive and reliable on the market. Our Modular Satellite Development Systems enables very early integration. Thus avoiding the many problems that occur when integration is only carried out long after all the design decisions for each subsystem have been made, when it is too late to fix incompatibilities.
Our SpaceWire routing switch and codec IP products, using a patented synchronous receiver design, are implemented in a single clock domain and thus avoid all of the problems of asynchronous logic and the requirement for careful FPGA placement. This IP could be critical to the success of your next SpaceWire project!
4Links is based in the Science and Innovation Centre at Bletchley Park, the World War II code-breaking centre, in Buckinghamshire, UK.

SUPERSiC® silicon carbide telescopes, mirrors, and structures for earth observation, star tracking, laser communication, and surveillance applications. Poco Graphite’s chemical vapor conversion (CVC) process for making SUPERSiC silicon carbide allows for highly-optimized and ultra-lightweight assemblies for space flight. The CVC process is also very low cost because large-volume machining is performed on the soft carbon material before gaseous conversion changes it to hard silicon carbide. After conversion, precision machining on critical surfaces ONLY helps to keep costs to a minimum and reduce lead times. Complex, highly optimized design, lightweight, low cost, shorter lead times are all characteristics of POCO’s unique method for making silicon carbide.

Xiphos has provided unique avionics solutions for over 20 years for the nanosat and cubesat market in the US, Canada and internationally. Xiphos solutions are built around flight-proven miniature processing products; examples include RF signal extraction and message demodulation from overlapped, collided, corrupted, Doppler-shifted ship location (AIS) transmissions, remote management of high-resolution images and video (e.g. space station cameras), real-time image and video enhancement techniques, and networked payload interface and control solutions (e.g. ISS payload interfaces). Xiphos solutions hybridize software and logic implementation of computing-intensive algorithms and use industrial-grade components in a fault-tolerant architecture intended for use in space environments. We then implement all of the above while minimizing size, mass and energy requirements. The resulting avionics solutions deliver high-end performance at much lower cost than traditional avionics on-board spacecraft.

ZARM Technik AG
ZARM Technik AG was founded in 1997 as a spin-off from the Centre of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity, an institute of the University of Bremen. As the institute successfully contributed to several German Space missions ZARM Technik focused on development and manufacturing of components for satellite attitude control system. Since its founding ZARM Technik became one of the leading manufacturers of magnetotorquers and magnetometers. Components produced for satellites are in use on most European and numerously international spacecrafts as the European Navigation system Galileo, Astro-H, Radarsat or NuStar. ZARM Technik AG is manufacturing for all large system integrators, universities and Space agencies worldwide. By now more than 130 missions have been supplied. A number of these are for more than a decade in orbit as for instance the Grace mission since 2002. Over the last years ZARM Technik AG has received several awards for successful work in different projects.
