Space Tech Expo Europe 2017

24 October 2017 - 26 October 2017

NPL understands the precision measurement needs of the space industry like nobody else – that's why we're at the forefront of developing world-first solutions for tomorrow's spacecraft testing.

At Stand E 90 at Space Tech Expo Europe, you'll discover world-first techniques designed by NPL, including:

  • 3D thermal and geometrical mapping system – the only method enabling non-contact true temperature qualification of whole satellites and subsystems. We'll be demoing this system at 11 am on Thursday 26 October.
  • Micro-Newton Electric Propulsion Thrust Measurement System, the first of its kind to provide independently-accredited performance, designed to increase customer confidence in the adoption of cutting-edge propulsion technologies

You can also learn more about NPL's bespoke training courses that are designed to build measurement capability and accelerate performance in the space industry.

Our customers and partners include: the European Space Agency, Airbus Defence & Space, Telespazio VEGA UK, and Orbital Sciences; and with over 40 years' experience within the space industry, we've solved problems – from the smallest vibration to the biggest mission objective
