INVAP will assist Addvalue Ltd. in the development of space qualified hardware

It follows a press release published today on the Addvalue Ltd. website from Singapore, highlighting that the company will receive technical assistance from INVAP in order to develop space qualified hardware.


Singapore, 8 June 2017 – Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed Addvalue Technologies Ltd (“Addvalue”, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"), a leading player in the mobile satellite communications industry today announced a collaboration with INVAP S.E. (“INVAP”), a leading technology company in Argentine Republic specialising in the design and construction of low earth orbit (“LEO”) and geostationary (“GEO”) satellites.

This collaboration is intended to facilitate the development and enhance the design of space hardware at Addvalue. Based on the INVAP training Addvalue expects to produce innovative high reliability communications equipment certified for commercial use in space. This includes parts selection, digital radio design, high reliability production, and space qualification environmental testing. This will contribute to the enhanced reliability required of communications equipment suitable for use on LEO satellites including our Inter-Satellite Data Relay System. This collaboration will allow Addvalue to capitalise on the expertise that INVAP gained from its previous successful space missions with regard to hardware qualification and in-orbit operations.

Addvalue will be sending a team of engineers to INVAP in Argentina for technical training to augment its manufacturing expertise later this month. The INVAP training is part of the Capability Development Program for Space funded by the Economic Development Board of Singapore.

Regarding the collaboration, Dr Colin Chan Kum Lok, Chairman and CEO of Addvalue, remarked, “We are upbeat about the collaboration with INVAP which will strengthen our design and manufacturing capability for products to be used in space. It will also serve as a gateway to potential space related business in Latin America including the opportunity to work together with INVAP on LEO satellite projects in the future.”

At the same time, Mr Héctor Otheguy, Chief Executive Officer of INVAP, commented, “Addvalue has a proven track record of delivering positive results since the production of its Proof-of-Concept communications mission equipment. As such, we perceive the upcoming collaboration with Addvalue to be an excellent platform to provide our expertise and knowledge in the development of space qualified hardware. We are confident that as a result of our collective efforts Addvalue will be well positioned to potentially unlock many uncharted market opportunities in the space industry.”
