In-orbit metrology of large deployable reflectors

by | Jun 13, 2020 | News

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 communications and Earth observation satellite missions.

For those fortunate enough to attend the Resonance Conference, visiting Ommatidia LiDAR’s booth at SURVISHNO 2023 was a highlight. Attendees had the opportunity to engage in insightful discussions with the team of experts from Ommatidia, exchanging ideas, exploring potential collaborations, and gaining deeper insights into the intricate workings of the Q1 solution. The interactions sparked conversations that could potentially shape the future of LiDAR technology..
