2022-05-11 08:35:37

Intense quarter with the largest order in Gapwaves' history
One of the most significant events during the period was when the global tech company, that Gapwaves has been working with since 2020, ordered additional high-resolution antennas intended for an imaging radar. The value of the order is about MSEK 10 and is the largest single order that Gapwaves has received to date.

Increased interest in advanced radar sensors
During the period, we have seen an increased interest in Gapwaves' technology for imaging radar intended for the higher levels of automated driving, SAE level 3-5. We are, in collaboration with our customers, targeting to develop a market leading radar sensor for self-driving vehicles at SAE level 3-5. At the end of the period, a new order was received from an American autotech company intended for an imaging radar. We see this order as a confirmation of the high value Gapwaves' antenna solution brings to the most advanced radar sensors, which are crucial to enable autonomous vehicles.

First quarter: 1 January - 31 March 2022  
  • Net revenue amounted to MSEK 5.8 (MSEK 2.4) 
  • EBITDA amounted to MSEK -8.2 (MSEK -12.4)

CEO Lars-Inge Sjöqvist comments on the report:
"There has been an intense quarter with deliveries in ongoing development projects in parallel with new customer dialogues. During April we visited several interesting companies in California that are interested in Gapwaves' antenna solution for imaging radar. The conclusion from our meetings is clear, existing, and potential customers have one common statement which speaks for Gapwaves; The biggest limitation on today's radar solution is the PCB-based antennas - We need a waveguide antenna."
