The MXT Instrument is part of the payload that will fly on board the SVOM mission, a collaboration between the CNES and the Chinese space agency. Almatech is developing the ultra-stable composites structure of the Instrument.
Almatech successfully delivered the Optical Structure and Radiators (IOMSR-EM) of SENTINEL-5 to Airbus Defence and Space GmbH!
BepiColombo, a collaboration between the European Space Agency and the Japanese space agency set to travel to Mercury will embark a piece of hardware delivered by Almatech, the BELA Reflective Baffle Unit.
Almatech will add another ESA Science mission to its growing portfolio by developing the struts and structure that will connect the payload to the spacecraft. The project is kicked off this year for a launch planned for 2026.
Anett Krammer, Almatech aerospace engineer was presenting at the Clean Space Industry Days at ESA a de-orbiting solution based on a thrust vector control mechanism using Almatech technology of Large Angle Flexible pivots.
