WORK Microwave, a leading European manufacturer of advanced satellite communication equipment, celebrates its twenty-fifth year of business operations at this year's IBC tradeshow and conference. In the past quarter of a century, the company has applied its extensive expertise in RF design and manufacturing, and microwave and digital signal processing technologies to the development of frequency converters, DVB-S2 equipment, navigation constellation simulators, and nuclear-radiation-free RF sensors. WORK Microwave's continued success is attributed to the dedication of its staff members, a strong focus on customer service, and the company's commitment to producing high-quality, reliable products.
Headquartered in Holzkirchen, Germany, the company is composed of four product divisions producing advanced products in the areas of satcom technologies, navigation simulators, sensors and measurement, and defence electronics. The company works closely with system integrators, broadcasters, telecom operators, satellite operators, teleports, DSNG operators, developers of navigation systems and applications, as well as with government organizations and defence technologies companies to provide analog and digital RF solutions. WORK Microwave also serves industrial production lines with high-precision microwave sensors for measurement applications.
The first WORK Microwave products developed in 1986 were signal sources and the first- and second-generation frequency converters that were representative of WORK Microwave's core competency: the ability to build highly stable and clean RF sources. The RF know-how later became the basis for successfully approaching the microwave sensor market. Post 2001, WORK Microwave responded to market demands by tracing the digital pathway and by broadening the company's product offerings to include digital RF solutions by developing a comprehensive range of video and network devices. During this time, the defence electronics market became a further stronghold for the company with the design and production of fast-hopping synthesizers for military radar applications. Between 2001 and 2006, WORK Microwave developed its third- and fourth-generation frequency converters. Also, in 2006, as a spin-off from the company's digital efforts, the expertise gained through the development of modulators was used to design the Multi-GNSS Laboratory RF Navigation Constellation Simulator (NCS). And most recently, in 2010, WORK Microwave introduced its range of IP-based satcom equipment.
"All of us at WORK Microwave look back proudly at our technology achievements and the unique reputation we have built in the industry," said Andreas Hausotter, CEO of WORK Microwave. "Looking ahead, with our commitment to product and technology leadership, we are confident in our ability to continue to develop pioneering technologies, such as the new IP-based satcom products we've started introducing, that create substantial value for our customers' businesses and for the industry."
