Many successful space missions are built on RUAG Space structures. Most of the ESA as well as many telecommunications satellites are equipped with structures from RUAG Space, which are made of metal, composite or hybrid technology.
And RUAG also keeps things moving on board satellites. The company’s mechanisms point solar generators, thrusters, antennas and instruments in the right direction. In extreme conditions. With utmost precision and reliability.
Furthermore, RUAG is a global leader in slip rings for application in space and in Mechanical Ground Support Equipment. Not least, RUAG Space is one of the world’s major providers of Thermal Equipment, especially multi-layer insulation
Many of RUAG’s technologies are also of interest for application on earth. For example, slip rings developed by RUAG Space are used in centrifuges, packing machines and mobile radar systems. The company Carl Zeiss equips its optical systems for microchip fabrication with RUAG’s precision mechanisms, and thermal insulation materials made by RUAG Space are employed not only on board satellites, but also in medical devices
