The Design Review of the Electrical Power Subsystem (EPS) Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) in support of the ESA FLuorescence EXplorer (FLEX) mission was concluded together with the customer Thales Alenia Space in the UK on the 23rd of June.
The FLEX EPS EGSE provides a test suite of hardware and software for supporting EPS assembly, integration and verification by means of Solar Array simulation, discrete signal simulation, Battery simulation, Umbilical launch support and various Load simulations. The EPS EGSE will provide the customer with a full range of ground support testing and simulation based on Rovsing key products such as the RO-5100 SAS Module, R0-1010 and RO-1100 SLP Modules, RO-2000 range MASC products as well as the Rovsing EGSE Controller SW Suite.
The FLEX mission was selected as the eighth Earth Explorer in ESA’s Living Planet Programme and will fly in tandem with the Copernicus Sentinel-3 mission. FLEX will provide global maps of vegetation fluorescence that can reflect photosynthetic activity and plant health and stress. The delivery of the EPS EGSE to TAS-UK is scheduled for Q4 2021 while the satellite is expected to be launched in 2024.
