The new hyperspectral satellite EnMAP is going to be launched next April. It will provide fundamental data on the fragile Earth #ecosystems and on how it is quickly changing. The satellite was developed by #OHBSystem AG on behalf of #DLR – German Space Agency with funding from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection.
In the frame of the EnMAP mission, #OHBItalia designed, developed and tested the Satellite Management System (SMS), made of two identical Satellite Management Units (SMU) responsible for the satellite commanding/monitoring over the whole operational lifetime and designed to interface/control all the electronics subsystems.
EnMAP SMU design was already successfully adopted by OHB Italia on #PRISMA satellite, launched in 2019.
