COMAT selected by AIRBUS (OneSat platform) and HEMERIA (KINEIS constellation) as equipment provider
Freshly, COMAT signed 2 major contracts regarding to its development: Within the scope of the OneSat satellite product line, Comat was selected by Airbus for the industrialization, manufacturing, integration, and acceptance test of a deployment and pointing sub-system key mechanism, to support the development of these new generation satellites. The frame contract order signed covers several years and represents dozens of this equipment.
In frame of KINEIS constellation, HEMERIA has selected Comat for reaction wheels providing. For this contract, COMAT will deliver more than 100 RW40 reaction wheels as of 2022.
