Altec Engineering have been working closely with Durham University to supply parts for the Sentinel-4 Space Mission. The parts were manufactured in a clean room within our build area. 

There are six satellites in total being put into orbit with the mission focusing on:

  • Air Quality measurements 
  • Stratospheric Ozone monitoring 
  • Solar Radiation measurements 
  • Climate monitoring 

More information on the sentinel mission can be found here 

The equipment is currently being tested in a clean room at the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation.
