Interoperable, ultra-low profile, high-gain satcom on the move


Export Compliance Officer

We have a great opportunity for an export compliance officer to join a growing company, working closely with supply chain and engineering in the development of a novel phased array antenna system.

Hanwha Phasor is a leading designer of electronically steered satellite communication antennas. As we prepare to start delivering our products globally, we are looking for an experienced Export Compliance Officer to help define and support the development and maintenance of our export compliance program. The successful candidate will work closely with our development teams, advising them on design decisions that may influence the final export classification and export license. They will also work with the supply chain team, ensuring the correct licences are in place for product and data imports & exports.

Look up and lock on to a bigger future, fast

As the original disruptors in solid-state satcom-on-the-move antenna, Hanwha Phasor is rewriting the book on phased arrays. It’s one of the toughest challenges in satcom. And, so far, we are the only team to demo multi-axis capability in real world conditions.

Now we’re closing in our goal: active electronically-steered antennas (AESA) for super-fast, super-reliable connectivity—GEO, of course, but LEO, MEO and HEO too.

Our inventive combination of digital and analogue architectures enables highest performance gain for lowest power and lowest profile, while our modular approach enables configurable apertures for the full range of enterprise customers on the move – in the air, on land or at sea.

Backed by Hanwha Systems, the Korean technology giant with a growing presence in global satcom, we are attracting formidable partners: we have appointed a world-class, global manufacturing partner, and two of the world’s best FABs are working on our chips.

So, what does that mean for you? All the fast-paced opportunity you’d expect from a challenger, plus the systems, processes and investment you’d want from an established industry leader.
