Rolf Heine Hochfrequenztechnik has succeeded to do another step forward in space technology. Astrium has placed an order for the design and manufacturing of a subsystem for the earth observation satellite TerraSAR.

This subsystem is part of the rf-section of the central electronic, which can be considered as the core of the TerraSAR´s radar instrument.

This order is another proof of the convincing technology and quality level of Rolf Heine Hochfrequenztechnik. Since years the company is a reliable partner for different space projects. It is remarkable, that for the TerraSAR Project not only single devices have been ordered, even a complete subsystem.

TerraSAR is a national project, which provides loads of data for the observation of the earth. The satellite is worth about 130 million Euro (approx. 130 million US $ ). Launching is planned for mid of 2005 with a Russian rocket. The mission will last for 5 years in an orbit of about 500 km height. The satellite is scanning the earth during day and night with radar beams. Even through dense clouds objects smaller than 1 metre can be detected. This independency from daylight and weather conditions makes the TerraSAR ideal suitable for catastrophe applications.

This order is the current height of Rolf Heine Hochfrequenztechnik in space technology.
