On December 8-11 Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems welcomed a delegation from AXON CABLE S.A.S (France).

During this business visit, Russian and French specialists discussed the results of contract implementation which the two companies had signed in 2014. According to the document, AXON CABLE was to manufacture and deliver to ISS-Reshetnev SpaceWire cable assemblies ensuring high speed data transmission from satellite service subsystems.

A joint team of ISS-Reshetnev and AXON CABLE specialists ran incoming inspection of cable assemblies delivered to the company under this contract in order to check their quality and reliability.

AXON CABLE S.A.S representatives also made a presentation to ISS-Reshetnev bringing the company up to date on its newest solutions – cable products for space applications.

The cooperation between ISS-Reshetnev and AXON CABLE can be traced back to 2011 when the two companies signed a contract for the supply of power components intended for use in the Loutch-5V data-relay satellite’s cable network. Designed and built by ISS-Reshetnev Company, Loutch-5V is part of Russia’s multifunctional space-based data-relay system Loutch.
