GALILEO IOV Phase: Kayser-Threde commences Work on Harness Integration
Kayser-Threde has proven in various satellite projects its capabilities as a specialist in the field of Harness Design, Manufacturing and Harness Integration.
Kayser-Threde also came out on top in the competition for the GALILEO IOV project and was selected for the tasks of design, manufacture and integration of the harness for the four satellites of the In-Orbit Validation Phase (IOV Phase).
The first thred payload flight panels of the first IOV-Satellite were delivered to Kayser-Threde from the structures supplier Thales Alenia in Turin, Italy. Further payload and platform panels will be expected in the course of this month.
The term harness applies to the electrical wiring for power and signal distribution between various devices including the satellite battery. Each satellite was fitted by Kayser-Threde with 542 connectors and almost 4 km of wiring, thus creating over 7.500 electrical connections.
The specialists at Kayser-Threde have already proven their skills during work on the Engineering Model.
Within the GALILEO project, Kayser-Threde is also responsible for the Precise Timing Facility. This provides the GALILEO Systems Time which is considered to be something similar to the pulse of the entire Navigation System.
