When SEIS reaches its destination at the end of November, the most sensitive seismometer that has ever been built will begin its work on Mars. Six FAULHABER stepper motors with planetary gearheads are currently on their way through space and, after the instrument has landed, will have two tasks: firstly to precisely balance the measuring mechanics and secondly to compensate for the tension forces that occur as a result of severe seasonal temperature fluctuations.
The aerospace division of Airbus has developed the first artificial assistant for astronauts named CIMON. It has been supporting the crew of the International Space Station ISS in several experiments since June. The little helper's suitability for more significant tasks in the future is also tested and further developed. Motors from FAULHABER enable it to move freely about the station.
Be it on land, on water or in the air, the Flywhale moves safely and reliably in all three elements. And more than that: It is a special aeronautical pleasure with which to explore the world from above in this amphibious aircraft made from super-light fibre composite material. Innovative drive technology from FAULHABER is also put inside these fascinating seaplanes, which are manufactured in North Germany.
2020 is the year of the next Rover mission to Mars. The main payload of the Russian Proton rocket: the ExoMars Rover, developed by the European and Russian Space Agencies (ESA & Roskosmos). The plan is for the vehicle to be equipped with nine measuring instruments. Including one that will be mounted on a two-meter mast on the rover.
"The Panoramic Camera", which was developed by Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL-UCL) in collaboration with OHB (Munich), DLR (Berlin) and TAS-CH (Zurich), will take stereo images of the planet.
