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.
