- The next eight Sentinel environmental satellites of the European Earth Observation Program Copernicus will be equipped with 16 navigation receivers from RUAG Space
Zurich, 21 June 2018. The navigation receivers from RUAG Space determine the current position of the satellite with an accuracy of just a few centimetres. Only in this way is a highly precise evaluation of the measurement data recorded by the instruments on board a satellite possible. Six Sentinel environmental monitoring satellites of the European earth observation program Copernicus are already using RUAG Space navigation receivers to determine their current position in space with high precision. The next eight Sentinel satellites will also be equipped with a total of 16 space-compatible receivers from RUAG Space. “We are the global market leader for navigation receivers” stresses Mats Warstedt, SVP Electronics, RUAG Space. The first two receivers for Sentinel satellites have already been delivered. The other 14 will be gradually delivered by summer 2019.
