Celestia STS has been awarded Galileo G2G Power EFM Front End contract from Airbus Defence and Space.
The Power EFM Front-End will be used to provide DC power to the satellite EM/EBB units integrated in the EFM (Electrical Functional Model) used for the functional verification program (by means of representative LCL). The Power EFM Front-End is made up of standard C-STS products in combination with COTS items. The Power EFM LCL outputs provide voltage and current sensing, as well as overcurrent and overvoltage protection. The LCL outputs are powered by commercial DC laboratory power supplies responsible for the provision of the 50VDC and 100VDC bus powers.
About Galileo G2G
Galileo is Europe’s civil global satellite navigation constellation, currently the world’s most precise satnav system, offering metre-scale accuracy to more than 2 billion users around the globe. With improved accuracy, the new generation should be able to offer decimetre-scale precision positioning to all.
These Galileo Second Generation (G2) satellites will revolutionise the Galileo fleet, joining the 26 first generation Galileo satellites in orbit today plus the 12 ‘Batch 3’ satellites currently in production and testing, with a first launch later this year.
