Abengoa, present in Sevilla New Space Forum

October 31, 2019

  • The company has an innovation area developing electronic systems for the aerospace, defense and scientific sectors.
  • Currently, the company is involved in international reference projects developing electronic test equipment for the Ariane 5, Ariane 6 and Vega-C launchers or R&D projects funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) to design technological demonstrators in ISRU (In-Situ Resource Utilization) for lunar exploration.

October 31, 2019 - Abengoa (MCE: ABG / P: SM), an international company that applies innovative technological solutions for sustainable development in the infrastructure, energy, water and industry sectors, was present at Seville New Space Forum which took place on October 28 and 29 in Seville (Spain), a meeting that brought together the European aerospace industry and served as a prelude to the European Space Agency’s next Ministerial Council, known as “Space19+”, which will take place in the same city next month.

During the event, Abengoa presented its capabilities and experience designing, manufacturing and testing electronic systems in the aerospace and defense sectors.

Currently, the company is involved in international reference projects such as the Ariane 6 and Vega-C launchers, being responsible for the automatic test equipment used in the launcher's qualification campaign for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) tests.

Abengoa has had a specific innovation division focused on aerospace and defense activities for the past 7 years. The division´s background and experience are backed by the successful completion of projects such as the ePDB for the Ajax land transport vehicle for the UK Ministry of Defense with General Dynamics as the main contractor, electronic equipment for the ALMA radio telescope, or automatic test equipment for the Ariane 5 and satellites like ExoMars, MTG or QUANTUM. It has also participated in a series of R&D projects funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) identifying synergies between industrial developments in energy and space exploration.

Seville New Space Forum has focused its debate on how the European industry is responding to the challenges of “new space”, a movement describing the emerging private spaceflight industry.

In addition to participating in this forum, Abengoa also took part in the celebration of World Space Week (October 2019). Seville currently holds the presidency of the Ariane city community (CVA) 2019.
