CLUTCH-AnyBAND currently serves S- and S-/X- band and further developments will support Ka, Ku and X-Band.

Built from the systems level perspective, incorporating the wider needs of satellite operators and missions in general.  Developed using systems engineering approaches of SSTL, Airbus Defence and Space, with automated test regimes, stressing the need for resilience.

CLUTCH-AnyBAND is a high performance solution, with an excellent value proposition for satellite ground station network providers and satellite operators looking to solve their own ground segment needs, including easy integration into existing network management systems, solving the problem of costly legacy replacement and support.

Our solutions run in a fully virtualised environment on generic servers, with an SDR board being the only piece of non-generic hardware.  We also offer a range of optional support services.
