SENER Aeroespacial receives Airbus Competitiveness Award

18/10/2021 (International)
  • SENER Aeroespacial has received the "Competitiveness Award" for its work as a key supplier in several satellites and programs, highlighting the contribution in OneSat.
  • This is the second time SENER Aeroespacial has been recognized by Airbus, following its "Best Improver" award in 2019.

SENER Aeroespacial has received from Airbus Defense & Space (ADS) the 'Competitiveness Award' during the 'Suppliers Day' held annually by ADS to recognize its best suppliers and which, in this edition, took place as a virtual event on Thursday, October 14, 2021.

During the event, the General Director of Space and Science of SENER Aeroespacial, Diego Rodriguez, thanked Airbus for the award with these words: "We have doubled our efforts to grow with AIRBUS, in what is a clear case of successful collaboration in the aerospace environment. The results have been very satisfactory with relevant participations in both their institutional and Telecom satellites". And he added: "We are confident that in the future we will deserve new awards; that will be the best proof of having achieved new joint goals."

Airbus has awarded SENER Aeroespacial this prestigious recognition for its work as a key supplier in several satellites and programs, highlighting the contribution in OneSat, a new paradigm in reconfigurable satellites, for which SENER Aeroespacial supplies several payload radiofrequency equipment. In 2019, SENER Aeroespacial received the "Best Improver" award in the "Equipment & Systems" category for its excellent performance in two other important Airbus projects: Inmarsat-9 and METOP.

The award has also valued the significant investment made by SENER Aerospace in 2021, with the inauguration of new facilities in Cerdanyola del Vallès (Barcelona) for the integration of hybrid circuits and the automatic assembly of electronic cards, which are fundamental in achieving the competitiveness objectives demanded by the new programs.

This award confirms SENER Aeroespacial as one of the leading European companies in Space and Science. One of the pillars of growth is the telecommunications sector, where it already has a track record of working on more than 1,500 satellites and space vehicles. In fact, SENER Aeroespacial is a world leader in supplying telemetry, tracking and command (TTC) antennas, and it regularly supplies all types of antennas and passive and active RF devices to leading international communications satellite manufacturers, as well as to the so-called New Space programs. It currently supplies power (SSPA) and low-noise (LNA) amplifiers that use GaN technology for Airbus's OneSat and Spainsat NG satellites, and its components are present in constellations such as Galileo, Globalstar 2G, O3B, Iridium NEXT and OneWeb. And new contracts are expected in 2021 for programs such as GlobalStar, Telesat and SES Next.

In addition to communications equipment, SENER Aeroespacial is a European leader in precision mechanical systems for satellite platforms and instruments, having taken part in the main programs of the ESA and NASA space agencies, with a 100% reliability rate. Its technology is present in important missions, including Hubble, Rosetta, SMOS, Pleiades, Herschel and Planck, JUICE, Athena, Solar Orbiter, Proba-3, Gaia, BepiColombo, ExoMars, Curiosity, Euclid, LISA Pathfinder, MTG, FLEX, LOP Gateway and Mars2020, Earth Explorers, Copernicus and Galileo. In launchers, it is a system vendor for ARIANE, VEGA and VERTA, and it is also involved in space transport vehicles such as ATV, Space Rider and IXV.

Of note in the area of science are its contributions to ground-based astronomy and large scientific infrastructure (LSI), where it has been present since 2000 and where it has a wide portfolio of projects that demonstrate the quality of its solutions for clients, such as the European Southern Observatory (ESO).
