20 Mar 2018







​Elecnor Deimos is now an established spacecraft AIV company, having integrated the Deimos-2 Earth Observation satellite, at its Castilla La Mancha plant in Spain. The 300kg agile (±30° off-nadir pointing) mini-satellite was launched in 2014, and produces high-resolution images of Earth from a multi-spectral push-broom imager to capture images on a 12km swath, achieving a resolution of 1m for panchromatic images and 4m in the visible and near infrared spectral range. Deimos‐2 was integrated and system-tested at the Castilla La Mancha site using equipment mainly procured from Asian suppliers. Environmental testing took place at government facilities near Madrid before shipping to the launch site​​​.
