Sodern star trackers for ISS-Reshetnev’s spacecraft

Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems has entered into a contract with the French company Sodern to procure its star trackers.

The contract was signed at the 49th International Paris Airshow in Le Bourget. According to the terms of the contract Sodern will supply star trackers for the Lybid satellite being manufactured by ISS-Reshetnev for Ukraine.

ISS-Reshetnev has been cooperating with the Sodern Company for 15 years. Thus far, the European manufacturer has supplied high quality equipment for 12 satellites by ISS-Reshetnev, which means that over 30 Sodern devices are now operating in orbit onboard Siberian satellites, ensuring fault-free performance of spacecraft attitude control subsystems.

So far, 2 more contracts have been prepared for signing with the Sodern Company for the supply of satellite optics for another 4 Siberian spacecraft.
