Marotta Controls Receives Contract from Airbus Defence and Space to Provide High Pressure Miniature Solenoid Valves

Marotta Controls announced that it has been awarded a contract from Airbus Defence and Space to provide high pressure Miniature Solenoid Valves for the Propulsion Modules of the MetOp Second Generation satellite constellation. The MetOp Second Generation programme is a cooperative undertaking between ESA and EUMETSAT to enhance meteorological data with improved spectral and spatial resolution. The MetOp-SG programme comprises two series of satellites, Satellite A and Satellite B, with three units in each series for a total of six satellites. The Satellite A series will carry optical instruments and atmospheric sounders, with Satellite B series carrying microwave instruments. Both satellite types will be based on the Airbus Defence and Space Astrobus satellite platform. After each satellite is launched into low earth orbit, the Propulsion Module will provide attitude and orbit control throughout mission life until the end of the operating mission; at which point the Propulsion Module actively deorbits the satellite for a controlled atmospheric re-entry maneuver. The first Satellite A is scheduled for launch in 2021, with Satellite B to follow within 18 months. Marotta’s miniature solenoid valves (model MV602) are key components of the Propulsion Module (PM) and are used in a bang-bang mode to re-pressurize the propulsion module’s hydrazine tanks with gaseous Helium (GHe). These miniature, high pressure, normally closed valves are based on the highly successful model MV602L, which is a latching configuration that was flight-qualified on previous ESA missions, LISA Pathfinder and Aeolus.

Marotta Controls, Inc. Wins Contract from Thales Alenia Space UK Ltd to Develop Xenon Pressure Regulation Assembly for Electric Propulsion System of New Spacebus Neo Satellite Platform

Marotta Controls, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a contract from Thales Alenia Space UK Ltd. to develop the Xenon Pressure Regulation Assembly (XPRA) for the electric propulsion system of its new Spacebus Neo satellite platform. Spacebus Neo is the Thales Alenia Space UK Ltd. next-generation satellite platform and will be developed with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA), under the ARTES 14 Neosat programme. This new platform is targeting a 30% decrease in the cost of a megahertz capacity into geostationary orbit and will be optimized for electric propulsion. Marotta’s XPRA will provide the critical function of precise regulation of xenon throughout the life of the satellite. The Xenon Pressure Regulation Assembly comprises critical flight qualified components based on Marotta’s heritage electric propulsion technologies. The key to the XPRA is Marotta’s patented Multi-Function Valve (MFV) - a proportional control device that provides the precise regulation and flow characteristics required for the Spacebus Neo propulsion system. The MFV was flight qualified in the critical drag compensation system of successful GOCE satellite where it operated continuously throughout this challenging mission.
