Piezo actuators are commonly used within Fast Steering Mirrors (FSM) for active stabilization, pointing and tracking functions. Such compact mechanisms are requested for Free-Space Optics and Deep Space Optical Communication since they are embedded and offer fast (up to 1kHz) and precise (µRad) tip tilt motion (up to +/-2°)...
CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES (CTEC) presents the design and test results of the P-FSM150S Pointing Ahead Mechanism (PAM) and M-FSM45 Fast Steering Mirror (FSM) Engineering Models, developed under ARTES project TELCO-B for future FSO constellations.
Free-Space Optics (FSO) for optical communication request new compact low-power high-stroke high-bandwidth Fast Steering Mirrors (FSM). To address this need, we have developed a Magnetically-actuated Fast Steering Mirror called M-FSM, taking heritage of its MICA™ actuators.
Don't miss the advancement of the H2020 ReMAP project which will contribute to reinforce the European leadership in aeronautics by developing an open-source solution for aircraft maintenance, the Integrated Fleet Health Management (IFHM) system.
BSMA mechanism demonstrates extremely fine positionning capability (~40 nm steps) while being robust to space environments. A first model (EM3) has been manufactured, tested and delivered to Airbus DS in May 2019.
Isère is the first department of France in number of patent applications per inhabitant and it’s mainly due to the city of Grenoble. Indeed, Grenoble is one of the five most innovant city in the world.
The objective of the AUDACITY project is to make the demonstration for a compact powerful and reliable piezoelectric actuator for future locking applications in aerospace. AUDACITY is required to demonstrate performance improvement with one order of magnitude compared with the State of the Art.
In the frame of the Cleansky 2 projects SYNJET3C and FLOCOS, CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES (CTEC) and TRISITEC are collaborating with both FRAUNHOFER and ONERA institutes, two major European research leaders in the development of Synthetic Jet Actuators (SJA) for Aerospace applications.
