CERTO Space Beacon

Syntech Microwave has participated in many important and highly involved space and scientific programs. Several of our Tri-Band CERTO beacons were installed on satellites launched into orbit as part of the COSMIC program which enabled measurement, study and characterization of earths ionospheric activities.


The pictures below show the original CERTO beacon along with the COSMIC satellite in which they were installed.

CERTO Gen 2 Space Beacon

The original CERTO Beacon was reconfigured for use on sounding rockets. Several beacons were produced for this application and launched from various installations around the world. The pictures below are of the CARE rocket and its launch from Virginia over the Atlantic Ocean
