SWISSto12 was recently named as one of the world’s “10 Hottest Satellite Companies.” This industry recognition follows the company’s announcement in Q4 2023 of securing over €200 million in customer orders for Radio Frequency subsystems and HummingSat satellites, including from leading satellite operators Inmarsat (Viasat) and Intelsat.

Industry veteran Peter Bach Andersen started working with the SWISSto12 team in November 2023 along with colleagues based out of Denmark. Peter Bach Anderson previously spent eleven years at Cobham Satcom in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark where he led the development of new RF, Microwave and Antenna technologies.

Peter Bach Andersen, Principal SatCom Systems Engineer, said, “Denmark is a world-renowned hub for aerospace and SatCom engineering. SWISSto12 has started to partner with a number of significant experts in the local area across Radio Frequency engineering and development roles and I look forward to collaborating with Swissto12 on their exciting Satcom projects.”

Emile de Rijk, CEO of SWISSto12 said, “SWISSto12 is continuing to scale in order to meet exceptional customer demand for our Radio Frequency subsystems and HummingSat – the first commercial GEO SmallSat. In Denmark, we have access to one of Europe’s leading aerospace and SatCom engineering talent pools. The addition of new production space and a new additional cleanroom to our Renens headquarters is further accelerating our mission to industrialise and scale our product lines and production capabilities.”

SWISSto12 will be exhibiting at Satellite 2024 in Washington DC 18 -21 March 2024 at Booth #1408. On 19 March, SWISSto12 CEO Emile de Rijk will be speaking at Satellite 2024 on “Assuring Quality-of-Service at Sea: Maritime Satellite Connectivity.”
