ASTRI POLSKA WILL CALIBRATE GNSS ANTENNAS FOR THE GALILEO SYSTEM

Uncategorized
Astri Polska, in cooperation with the University of Warmia and Masuria in Olsztyn, Poland, will develop and create an environment for GNSS antenna calibration. At the beginning of January, the consortium embarked on the implementation of the GRAVEr project. The project, financed by the European Space Agency, will allow Polish businesses to acquire key competences in a field that currently presents a market niche. The objective of the GRAVEr project (where ‘GRAVEr’ stands for GNSS Receiver Antenna calibration serVice for new E-GNSS signals) is to develop and implement a calibration environment for GNSS antennas that would be applicable to antennas working in different receive frequency ranges and coming from different GNSS systems, with special consideration to Galileo, the European global navigation satellite system. Devices employing this type of antennas are…

ASTRI POLSKA TO DELIVER SOLUTIONS FOR THE THAILAND’S SATELLITE PROGRAMME

ASTRI POLSKA TO DELIVER SOLUTIONS FOR THE THAILAND’S SATELLITE PROGRAMME

Uncategorized
  Astri Polska joins the THEOS-2 programme which aims to develop two Earth observations satellites for the government of Thailand. The solutions developed by the Warsaw-based company will support testing of the onboard computer of one of the satellites, scheduled to be launched in 2020.   The purpose of the THEOS-2 programme is to develop two Earth observation satellites for Thailand’s government - the high-resolution satellite and a small satellite system. The high-resolution satellite will be delivered by Airbus Defence and Space when the small satellite system from Surrey Satellite Technology  (Airbus subsidiary) will be assembled and tested in Thailand by local engineers as a part of the technology transfer. The role of Astri Polska in the project will include integration of the test environment which will make it possible…

POLISH DEVICE SUPPORTS THE JUPITER EXPLORATION. ASTRI POLSKA FINALIZES THE DELIVERY FOR EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY

POLISH DEVICE SUPPORTS THE JUPITER EXPLORATION. ASTRI POLSKA FINALIZES THE DELIVERY FOR EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY

Uncategorized
  Astri Polska delivered the electrical device for the scientific mission of European Space Agency (ESA), which aims to explore the Jupiter and its three icy-moons. The device will have a significant impact on the development of the mission, and it's the most advanced product delivered by the company so far. In the forthcoming year, Astri Polska plans the further expansion on the European Space Market.   JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) is a scientific mission of European Space Agency, which aims to explore Jupiter and its three icy-moons. The probe will be launched in 2022. The device developed by Astri Polska will be connected to the probe making it possible to test its electronic systems before launching into space. It is an important phase of every space programme, due…

SATELLITE DATA WILL SUPPORT THE RIVER-ICE MONITORING

SATELLITE DATA WILL SUPPORT THE RIVER-ICE MONITORING

Uncategorized
In October, Astri Polska finalized the satellite river-ice monitoring system. The role of the service is to deliver up to date information about the current situation on the rivers and help to avoid the floods. The solutions were developed within the ESA and World Bank EO4EP programme.  The ice-jams are one of the main reasons for the floods in Poland in the winter season. The system developed by Astri Polska allows to monitor the rive-ice and divide it into 3 categories. - Our system’s use of the free-of-charge data, derived from the European “Copernicus” satellite EO programme is its major advantage. Thanks to the above the user does not bear extra costs stemming from gathering of the new data. Furthermore, the accuracy of the gathered data reaches up to 90%…

Delivery of all the devices for the NeoSat (Eurostar Neo) programme

Uncategorized
Astri Polska delivered the last of four electronic devices (EGSE) contracted within the NeoSat (Eurostar Neo) programme. The contract value was 5 mln PLN (1,2 mln EUR).  The Eurostar Neo programme aims to develop the new generation platform of the telecommunication satellites. The new platform will be 30% less expensive, in comparison with the designs used so-far, also offering a better capability regarding the payload. The prime contractor of the Eurostar Neo programme is Airbus Defence and Space. Within the contract, Astri Polska delivered 2 types of EGSE’s: two Simulated Electrical Flight Model and two Simulation Front End. The role of the devices will be to validate the electronic systems of the satellites. - Delivery of hardware for the Eurostar Neo satellites is a major milestone in the history of…
