SES is Trident’s business area dedicated to the research, development, design and manufacture of semi-custom Multi-Function RF Processors, Software Defined Radios (SDRs), On-Board Processors (OBPs) and storage solutions for space. Using a rapid response, radiation effects mitigated design approach, SES has become an industry leader in low cost, high performance, open architecture solutions for multi-function RF and processing systems in modern space programs. On-orbit, failure free, since 2019.
Building on decades of high-reliability, high-performance product design, the SES team specializes in multi-disciplinary full life-cycle product design and support for a wide range of mission areas. SES has established itself as a mission partner with a base of Defense Primes supporting DoD, Intelligence, and Civil space customers. A selection of SES product offerings can be found below, however these represent only a portion of our capability and offerings as a mission partner.
