Over four decades of experience

Beyond Gravity has been involved in space missions since the first space missions in the early 1970s. For us, reliability, meticulous planning and, not least, rigorous testing are important and vital parts in the development of components, electronics and structures for use in space. With our long-standing experience and extensive knowledge we are able to test a wide range of materials and products in our test facilities in Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Finland and the US. The testing for qualification and testing of flight hardware and industrial products is one of our core competences. This includes destructive as well as non-destructive testing.

Beyond Gravity offers antenna testing in its own RF lab and 6-meter antenna measurement range. We can perform near and far field measurements from 900MHz up to 40 GHz. The test facilities are set up with the latest available test equipment and has automatic roll tables for fast and accurate measurements
