Aerospace, Defence and Systems

The space industry has been one of Elecnor Deimos´strategic areas, with the European Space Agency (ESA) as its primary customer.

Elecnor Deimos plays a role in most ESA space programmes: Launchers, Planetary Exploration, Manned Flights, Earth Imaging, Satellite Navigation, etc., and is involved in engineering, developing and integrating operations systems for the Flight Segment, Ground Segment and User Segment.

Furthermore, it plays a role in all space mission phases, conducting mission analysis, system engineering, Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC), Attitude and Orbit Control Systems (AOCS), Ground Segment, On-board Software Systems, etc., performing tasks involving engineering design, the definition of algorithms, prototypes, development of operational software, system integration, validation, system roll-out and operational support.

In Systems, the high-quality software development which Elecnor Deimos has demonstrated in its aerospace experience has been transferred to the development of industry software in this business area, in which applications are specified and developed for a host of sectors, including Telecommunications, Energy and Industry, the Environment, Transportation and Satellite Navigation Systems.

One of Elecnor Deimos’ main accomplishments this year has been starting up the automatic passenger information system for Barcelona’s urban train (Cercanías), with over 100 stations deployed and real-time management of thousands of train movements per day.

We should also mention the Enerdate wind farm control system, which processes and stores 50,000 signals per minute in real-time, allowing the state of the wind farms to be consulted from any terminal via the Internet, thanks to the most advanced interface technology.
