Airbus Crisa’s participation in demanding missions to the Sun and Moon, to the planets and out into deep space are helping answer such fundamental questions as how were the Earth and other planets formed…is there other life in the solar system…and what happened after the Big Bang?
The space probes that are unraveling these mysteries rely on mission-critical equipment and systems from Airbus Crisa for power management, monitoring and analysis, control electronics and processing.

From mapping more than a billion stars in the Milky Way to capturing spectacular images of galaxies, Airbus Crisa-equipped space probes are providing new perspectives on the universe.
To accomplish these missions, spacecraft systems must operate in the most difficult environments, as they are subjected to conditions that include extreme temperatures and high levels of radiation.
Earth-orbiting satellites are the silent sentinels that play an important in everyone’s daily lives – with such duties as observing Earth’s increasingly fragile environment and predicting the weather, ensuring global telecommunications, and broadcasting entertainment programming to fixed and mobile users.
As these satellites continue to evolve, Airbus Crisa is positioned to develop and produce the power systems that respond their mission needs in the most demanding operational needs.

Since the dawn of the space age, launch vehicles have become increasingly powerful and versatile as they send thousands of payloads into Earth orbit and beyond.
Airbus Crisa’s expertise in power systems has evolved during the past three-decades, responding to market demands for launchers that are more competitive with increased modularity, flexibility and producibility.
Space engineering has become a highly demanding discipline for new technologies. This results from missions that are increasingly challenging, as well as the need to address faster production rates and the pressures on costs due to tighter budgets and the influence of disruptive market trends.
In response, Airbus Crisa is creating even more innovative solutions that apply its expertise in more performing electronic components, cutting-edge design and manufacturing tools and processes, new materials for thermal management and electrical insulation, along with new architectures for power electronics and digital control.
This enables Airbus Crisa to continually evolve its product lines, leveraging on our heritage to offer new responses in advanced processing, electronics for active antennas, front-end electronics and multi-purpose electric propulsion units, among others.
