Emxys project features in ESA web page

ESA Telecommunications and Integrated Applications Department presents Emxys contactless sensors for space applications.

Telecommunications and Integrated Applications Department of the European Space Agency, has updated its web page with Emxys Contactless Angular Sensors for Telecom Satellites Long Lifetime Mechanisms product.

Emxys has developed, together with ALTER and under an ARTES 5.1 ESA contract, a capacitive coupled contactless angular sensor for space applications specially suited for telecommunication satellites mechanisms but also applicable for a wide range of space applications including scientific missions, low earth orbiting platforms and general aerospace applications.

Emxys is at this moment engaged in the definition of an engineering model of this sensor as a stage toward its fully qualification for space flight in the year 2012.
