DLR's TET-1 Gains Kayser-Threde Trust + Thrust
|28 июля 2008|
Kayser-Threde GmbH will be the prime contractor for the space and ground segment, as well as launch services, for the satellite mission TET-1 from the Space Agency of the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
The project volume of the Phase C/D amounts to 21 million Euro. The contract entrusts Kayser-Threde and its subcontractors with all aspects involved in the construction and manufacture of the satellite as well as the various tests for space flight qualification, and all of the necessary infrastructure for the satellite mission and the preparations required for launch.
The TET-1 mission will be carried out under contract to DLR with funds from the German Ministry for Economics and Technology (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Technologie). TET-1 is the core element of DLR’s On-Orbit Verification Program (OOV). The main aim of this program is to test new space technologies in a space environment over a period of one year. Eleven experiments will be accommodated by Kayser-Threde on board the satellite, which has a mass of 120 kg. TET-1 is scheduled for launch mid 2010 on a SOYUZ/ FREGAT rocket as a secondary payload. The satellite will be released in a sun synchronous orbit at an altitude of approximately 500 km.
