CENOS™ radio frequency simulation increases agility, development speed, and performance
For companies designing antennas
The small satellite industry is an exciting and very precise industry where working on prototypes requires a tremendous amount of effort. At CENOS™, we've made it our mission to explore the way companies design antennas for their satellites.
Space companies outsource the design of communications subsystems, going back and forth on link design and placement. We found that satellite manufacturers often use expensive and overcomplicated simulation tools that limit the capabilities of the RF design team.
Better alternative for simulations
With very easy-to-use and affordable simulation tools, CENOS™ RF simulation software enables small satellite makers to conduct antenna design and placement studies in-house. This improves the agility, development speed, and performance accuracy of their small satellites' communication components.
CENOS™ prioritizes usability over other similar software. Companies like Fossa Systems in Spain value the ability to closely investigate and optimize the location of antennas in their satellites. Their method is to imitate this task.
Suitable for all kinds of satellite types
CENOS™ radio frequency simulation software for engineers around the world
In this 3-minute video, our engineer will show you the basics of CENOS™ RF simulation software and how easy it is to run a simulation and export the results in 3D graphics as well as PDF report.
This video is an example of how to run a simulation on a small cube satellite.
You can also download a PDF report for that simulation below.

What our customers say about CENOS™
“Overall 2.0 is much easier to use and automatic meshing seem to work well.
Sim just finished and the 3D view has appeared and I am excited. I had been struggling to get a similar antenna design to sim using the old tool but is working. I like having being able to modify the variables in the Radio Frequency setup.
I have a big smile on my face.”
“It’s great, it’s actually the only 3D simulation package for a reasonable price point for product engineers.”
“CENOS is facilitating the easy access to antenna simulation from amateurs to satellite designers”
