SENER - Organisers of the 16th ESMATS

sener aerospace In Space, SENER has developed from its beginnings mechanisms and mechanical systems that cover almost all the needs of the Flight Segment. This is backed up with technical solvency, successfully proven on more than 60 satellites and spacecrafts currently operating with SENER equipment on board. In fact, SENER has a major history of successful deliveries, with which it has achieved a reputation for quality and reliability in Space. In its almost 50 years, SENER has supplied over 260 equipments and systems for ESA, NASA, JAXA and Roskosmos’ missions without a single failure. The company has taken part in programmes such as the Hubble Space Telescope, Columbus, Envisat, Rosetta, Meteosat SG, Herschel and Planck, MetOp, Mars Science Laboratory, Gaia and Sentinel 1, 2 and 3, as well as commercial missions such as Hispasat, Spainsat or XTAR-EUR. Currently it is working in Bepi Colombo, Meteosat TG, Solar Orbiter, Euclid and Proba-3, among others. SENER was the first Spanish company to win a European Space Agency (then ESRO) tender, in 1967, to design and build the rocket targeting and launch tower in Kiruna (Sweden).
