SWARM – Aiming for the perfect constellation
Over the past four years, Telespazio VEGA Deutschland has been one of the many European industry partners working to help get ESA’s Swarm mission into space.
Engineers responsible for the launch and subsequent operations must be trained and tested well in advance, and a team from the company has developed a simulator for this purpose.
It is now being used at ESA’s Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.
