BHE signs high value contract with ESA to supply Master Reference Oscillator for Venus mission

BHE is proud to announce our involvement with the EnVision spacecraft where we will supply the Master Reference Oscillator. The MRO is part of the radio science experiment (RSE), which will supply high precision signal to make measurements in the atmosphere.

This prestigious Venus mission led by ESA with important contributions from NASA targeting a launch in the early 2030s. will characterize the interaction between the planet’s different boundaries – from the interior to surface to atmosphere – providing an all-encompassing global view of the planet and its processes.

Last week our team had the opportunity to attend the first workshop at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, and meet the other teams.
