The central tubes design and manufactured by CASA are qualified for satellite platforms from 200 up to 8.000 Kg.
The integration of the whole value chain (design, qualification and production) in the same facilities allows a reduction in cost / schedule
The experience of more than 20 years provides a solid background based on well-proven design features.
The CASA facilities and manufacturing means are well adapted for small and large satellite structures (i.e. Envisat, biggest satellite ever built in Europe).
Satellite structures are aplicable to any type of missions either scientific, earth observation, telecommunication, etc.
