On 18.02.2016 in ESTEC SpeceForest summarized the results of work on low noise frequency generator project for European Space Agenc
The main objective of the “Development of key technologies for frequency generators project” was to develop highly stable frequency generator.
The generator can be used in upcoming ESA Space missions like JUICE 2022 and PLATO 2024.
Results of team work was presented in Noordwijk, ESA technical projects center (ESTEC). Speakers: SpaceForests R&D department director and main engineer of PLDRO project.
Conclusions are as follows:
- developed by the SpaceForests R&D department highly stable generators meet project requirements,
- level of project’s progress provide a basis for further development,
- generators could reach the TRL 6 and TRL 7, or even higher, levels before production of subsystems for mission JUICE and PLATO will start
The audience applauded presented work world! results.
SpaceForest was the only polish company invited to ESA Final Presentation Days – Payload Technologies and Products. In that way ESA awarded our company , which has successfully and according to plan implemented a project in the framework of PIIS 2014.
