In-orbit large deployable reflectors (source: Comet Ingeniería)

This week, Ommatidia LIDAR and COMET INGENIERÍA have kicked off a project with the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a new generation of in-orbit surface metrology systems for large deployable reflectors. Being able to measure the shape of these antennas during operation with high accuracy is essential for future European very-high-throughput satellite missions.
