SENER, a top-class aerospace systems provider
SENER Aerospace, division of the multinational engineering and technology group SENER (2,300 people in 18 countries with Catalan headquarters set up in the Barcelona Synchrotron Park with a strong activity in the aerospace sector), experienced a rich October with several interesting news. Four of them are briefly explained below:
 
  • SENER Aerospace delivered the antenna feeds of all Galaxy-30 satellite reflectors, a commercial communication satellite from the Northrop Grumman Company.
  • SENER Aerospace and CATEC developed a 3D-printed metal antenna for the European Space Agency's PROBA-3 space mission, one of the first space antennas in the world developed using this 3D printing technology (SENER Aerospace is the main contractor for the PROBA-3 mission).
  • SENER Aerospace has successfully completed the delivery of the nominal version of the Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS) for the Euclid satellite, an ESA cosmology mission aimed at investigating the nature of dark matter and dark energy (Euclid includes a 1.2 m diameter telescope).
  • Finally, SENER Aerospace delivered the flight model of the Umbilical Release Mechanism for the Rosalind Franklin Rover of the ExoMars 2020 ESA mission that will start its journey to the red planet in next July.

Good take-offs!
