Paris, 7 September 2022 – Expleo will exhibit at the 73rd International Astronautical Congress. The Congress will be held at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from 18 to 22 September 2022, under the theme “Space for @ll”.
Innovations for a new space age
Expleo will be in the Aerospace Valley exhibition area at Stand F3 where it will present its latest innovations designed to shape the future of the space industry, including:
- ENSO Nanosatellite: Developed by Expleo engineers, researchers and technicians in partnership with the Montpellier University Space Centre (CSUM). ENSO, which stands for Expleo Nanosat for Solar-irradiance Observations, is due to be sent into space in early 2023: this 10cm3 cube that fits in the palm of a hand will have the mission of analysing solar activity in the ionosphere and its impact on the Earth. Stratoflight
- Stratospheric Space Tourism: Expleo is partnering with the company Stratoflight in the development of a stratospheric capsule for space tourism. The capsule will send tourists by balloon almost 35 kilometres into the sky. Expleo engineers are designing the passenger compartment that will allow passengers to ascend safely to the edge space, ‘exit’ onto the integrated extravehicular platform, and then return to Earth.
In addition, Expleo experts will be present to discuss its wider range of smart, scalable and sustainable solutions and projects, from space data management to next-generation ground systems equipment.
Space for all: supporting the opening of the sector to a wider range of expertise
To enable the transformation of the space sector and support its development, Expleo is strengthening its teams by integrating cutting-edge expertise to meet the industry challenges, including product compliance, performance and reliability, and electronics and embedded systems.
Frédérique Rebout, Head of Space, Expleo, commented: “Expleo is an active player in the emergence of a new space age. We design, develop and monitor state-of-the-art solutions to meet the highly complex challenges facing the industry, including the climate crisis, security, orbital debris management and commercial exploration. We are excited to join the International Astronautical Congress as we work towards our collective goal to open up space for the benefit of everyone on Earth.”
