Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA)

“The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will be the first space-based gravitational wave observatory. Selected to be ESA’s third large-class mission, it will address the science theme of the Gravitational Universe.”

Scope of activities – System engineering support to Albert Einstein Institute, Hannover.

Force Field Test Tool for the M1 mirror of EELT / M1 cabinet for EELT

“The European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) is a revolutionary scientific project for a 40m-class telescope that will allow us to address many of the most pressing unsolved questions about our Universe.”

Scope of activities – Design and development of the Force Field Test Tool for the test of the M1 mirror segment support. Testing activities of the control cabinet for the mirror segment. 

eROSITA / Spectrum-Roentgen-Gamma space telescope – Max Planck Institute

”eROSITA will be the primary instrument on-board the Russian “Spectrum-Roentgen-Gamma” (SRG) satellite which will be launched from Baikonur in 2019 and placed in an L2 orbit. It will perform the first imaging all-sky survey in the medium energy X-ray range up to 10 keV with an unprecedented spectral and angular resolution.”

Scope of activities – Design, qualification and AIT flight campaign of the eROSITA space telescope. In flight commissioning and calibration planning. Technical interface with NPO Lavochkin and IKI, Russian partners in the SRG mission. 

uROSI X-Ray Telescope / Max Valier Satellite – Max Planck Institute

Small X-Ray telescope to be integrated into a nano-satellite. Collaboration between Max-Planck Institute for Extraterrerstrial Physics, OHB and Max Valier Technical School.

Scope of activities – Testing and qualification of detector electronics.


”The launch of the Amazonas 2 on October 1, 2009, allowed HISPASAT to double its capacity in America and increase its selection of innovative and high quality communications solutions and services to the continent, in addition to consolidating the Group as the leading company in Spanish and Portuguese-speaking markets.The high broadcast power of its 64 transponders – 54 in Ku band and 10 in C band, together with the advanced version of the Amerhis intelligent processor, made the Amazonas 2 the largest communications satellite with pan American coverage.”

Scope of activities – Design, qualification and test flight campaign for the AMERHIS 2 Ku band Up and Downconverter .

GAIA Space Telescope – ESA

”The main goal of the Gaia mission is to make the largest, most precise three-dimensional map of our Galaxy by surveying an unprecedented one per cent of its population of 100 billion stars.”

Scope of activities – Support in the design and qualification of the SSPAs for the downlink active antenna.


”ABS-2, built by Space Systems/Loral was launched in February 2014. It will bring substantial new capacity to the location at 75°E, serving four continents. It will bring C, Ku and Ka band connectivity for commercial and military applications.”

Scope of activities – Design, qualification and test flight campaign for 10 flight Ku band LNA units.

Hispasat AG1 SmallGeo – Hispasat/OHB

”The HISPASAT AG1 constitutes the first mission of the Small GEO platform, developed by OHB Systems (Germany) with the European Space Agency and HISPASAT. It includes the innovative REDSAT regenerative payload, which allows HISPASAT to use the satellites power in a more agile and efficient manner, substantially increasing its transmission capacity with the subsequent reduction in the cost of communications. The Hispasat AG1, which will be launched in 2015, will have up to 20 transponders onboard in Ku band and up to 3 in Ka band, aside from an innovative active antenna of reconfigurable beams.”

Scope of activities – Design, prototyping, qualification and test flight campaign for Ku and Ka band receivers.
