Space Instruments

Extreme performance requirements, severe power and mass constraints, long mission durations combined with a harsh environment, that is what makes things different from most terrestrial applications. Scientific space instruments are our very core business since the beginning more than 35 years ago. And it’s not only our business – we love to develop systems that expand your knowledge about space.

The following example projects illustrate our flight heritage of instruments in space.
