The development of advanced payloads and spacecraft control systems depends on the ready availability of high-performance and high-reliability components.
What is the EEE Components domain?
They are mostly small in size but indispensable: Electrical, Electronic and Electro-mechanical (EEE) components are the fundamental building blocks of any spacecraft. It is one of ESA’s priorities to ensure the availability of suitable, reliable and cost-effective EEE components for the space industry.
Working closely with other space agencies as well as industrial partners, quality standards are set for EEE components and tests are carried out to evaluate their overall suitability for space applications.
