Reducing the mass of all components, parts and equipment is a continuous objective in the space industry. Already involved in a multitude of space projects, Axon’ has now designed a low mass SpaceWire to lighten traditional high speed links. Since recent approval by ESA, the Axon’ Low Mass SpaceWire is the only one qualified to the ESCC3902/004 standard after Axon’ successfully completed development of the cable under ESA funding.
We now offer enlarged range of products insulated with PTFE, ETFE, FEP or polyimide for needs that have extra tough requirements like temperature resistance from -90°C to +260°C, excellent dielectric and aging characteristics, radiation resistance, extreme flexibility etc. Available in different types including single-stranded, multi-stranded, extruded, taped, shielded or jacketed versions, they will meet all the requirements. Contact our sales team to learn more.
On 3rd December, the scientific satellite Lisa Pathfinder, LPF, took off from the space base in Kuru on board a VEGA launcher. Its role: to test and validate advanced technologies which will be used for LISA, a mission which aims at directly detecting gravitational wave as predicted by Albert Einstein. Measuring devices which are onboard LPF are extremely precise and connected with high reliability data links made by Axon’ to the MIL-STD-1553 standard. The same kind of harnesses equip the VEGA launcher. For LPF, Axon’ has also supplied ESA cabling wires designed to resist radiation and extreme temperatures. Photo: ESA
