Galaxy 30 and MEV-2 satellites successfully launched, with SENER Aeroespacial components

August 14, 2020 saw the successful dual launch of the Galaxy 30 and the MEV-2, two satellites where SENER Aeroespacial played a crucial role.

SENER Aeroespacial components have been present in all Orbital Sciences Corporation satellites since the first one manufactured by this American company, which is now 100% owned by the giant Northrop Grumman.

Between the MEV-2 and Galaxy 30, SENER Aeroespacial has provided a total of 70 devices, which play a key role in numerous systems on these satellites. Our engineering team generated 38 different designs, which were manufactured and tested in our facilities.

SENER Aeroespacial is responsible for the antennas and passive devices of the telemetry, tracking and command (TTC) system of MEV satellites, which are designed to extend the life of another satellite.

SENER Aeroespacial has also provided the feeders for the reflectors in the C, Ku and Ka bands that are present in the Galaxy 30, as well as numerous components for the TTC subsystem. Additionally, the Galaxy 30 hosts the WAAS payload, a system that improves the accuracy of the GPS, and for which SENER Aeroespacial has designed and produced several L1 and L5 band devices: array antennas, input and output channel filters, as well as other passive devices.

The launch included a third satellite, the Bsat-4B, manufactured by Maxar, which also features SENER Aeroespacial radio frequency devices.
