Infographic: SENER in GAIA
The European Space Agency’s Gaia mission uses two telescopes to observe and catalog millions of stars, 1% of the Milky Way’s contents.
SENER Aeroespacial participates in this space mission by:
- Designing, integrating and verifying the satellite’s 11-meter diameter deployable sunshield
- Developing the M2M positioning subsytem
- Designing and manufacturing the electronic units that regulate both the sunshield deployment (the
two SDE units) and the accurate movement of the M2M, the MDE unit.
