We're also involved in projects which protect our critical national infrastructure, including secure navigation receivers for Galileo PRS, transceivers for the Mars Rovers and experiments for NASA. Our super-efficient T6 electric propulsion engines are currently propelling the European Space Agency’s BepiColombo mission to Mercury. Two research programmes we conducted have helped to prepare for the development of satellites that will contribute to critical climate change research. And from our state-of-the-art dynamic flight simulator and human centrifuge in Sweden, we offer training to enhance the experience and help people prepare for commercial suborbital spaceflight!
