The European Engineering Consultancy is a Specialist Engineering Company providing world leading electronic and mechanical solutions to Space, High Technology Science and Industrial Markets.

Who are we?

We provide bespoke advanced electronic solutions with a strong emphasis on Radio Frequency products, particularly within the space industry. We provide affordable access and a route to world-class electronic design, RF simulation and mechanical engineering services to companies of all sizes in any sector of the industry. We have a ISO-Class 7 cleanroom and an ISO-Class 8 Test and Measurement Laboratory. The European Engineering Consultancy has undertaken many large complex projects from design and build of Quantum Computing hardware to Lunar Space Missions. We provided 2 years of design and space consultancy on the Airbus OneWeb Channeliser RF Payload – at completion there were 400 in orbit, much of the design was by EECL. Our project scales have varied from those taking just a few hours to complex long-term design, simulation or full product development engagements.

We are proudly supported by the UK Space Agency and have recently been selected by the European Space Agency (ESA) to provide the GNSS payload for Lunar Pathfinder – this will be the first GPS position fix outside of earths orbit. More examples of our work are the development of 5G beam-formers, microwave synthesisers and Low Noise Amplifiers for GNSS Space missions. We can deliver highly professional full systems from concept, design, test and delivery in just 4 months. We can do the same for you.

As a company we also diversify into other areas. We were recently selected to design and build one of the most complex pieces of Quantum computing microwave hardware conceivable for a large multi national organisation. We turned around a working design fit for mass production in 12 months. The design is now being manufactured in volume worldwide. If you have a difficult problem come and speak to us.

We have a get it right first time approach to RF hardware and always go the extra mile with customers to deliver a fully complete and working product. We have the ability to design and measure antennas, RF hardware and provide calibrated measurements. We can deliver you customised metal RF enclosures with absorber and EMC sealing, Come and Speak to us!

Antenna Design

We have a huge amount of experience in the design of antennas. We understand the exact trade-offs which need to be made and can build antennas tailored for most application requirements. Just recently we provided a phased array antenna panel and it performed exactly right first time. We can deliver all sorts of antennas, patch elements, 3D structures and and arrays of printed antenna structures.


All electronics generally requires software to control it. We use and can supply Matlab / Embedded Software and various interfaces to allow control of hardware. We are specialists in automated test and can generate you bespoke automated test software which will control and test your systems. We make use of scripting to generate large test routines that can characterise equipment over temperature, time or any other physical parameter. Get in touch to talk about what we can do for you!

June 2023 – First Hardware in Space

The 12th of June 2023, Transporter 8 marked the 200th booster landing for SpaceX Falcon 9. Subsequently it also launched the very first EECL manufactured GNSS receiver for SpacePNT. The hardware is currently in orbit operating nominally. This has been an incredible milestone in the company’s calendar with many more EECL designed and manufactured hardware launches to come.

March 2022 – EECL Completes Radiation Testing for Lunar Pathfinder

EECL have completed a gruelling radiation campaign to qualify the SpacePNT GNSS receiver for flight. We worked day and night bombarding sensitive components with heavy ions flying at 90% the speed of light – thus simulating single event effects in order to validate their performance in space. Thanks to ESA for supplying the facilities at UCL Belgium and GSI Frankfurt it was a real honour for EECL to be trusted to conduct these radiation tests.  (UCL Left, GSI Right).

August 2020: EECL Supply 5G Metamaterial Antenna

EECL has just delivered a world first to the University of Surrey which was the manufacture of a large 5G metamaterial intelligent surface (2 meters across) for the reflection and control of 5G beams.  The creation of such a large structure is incredibly difficult, but EECL has the capability and experience to deliver such a prototype and we took the proposed design from concept to realisation in just 5 weeks. The delivered antennas contain thousands of surface mount components and large dielectric panels stitched together using exotic materials – all mounted on a custom built demonstration rig. The delivered design worked perfectly for the University of Surrey.

The result of EECLs manufacturing work can be seen in this excellent video made by the University of Surrey to demo the Meta-Material Antennas:
